|Marley, Kevin||Yes||Yes, having looked over their literature and digital content I believe this is an excellent example of innovative ways to better our society without limiting growth. Their road design is a much better way to reduce traffic fatalities than just speed limits and crosswalk laws.|
|Scime, John||Yes||Zero Vision is something that I whole heartedly believe in and have been a vocal advocate for safer streets. The safety of our residents at every level is the utmost importance. This needs to be a multi-pronged approach starting with street design and impact planning. Introducing lower inter-residential speed limits, protected bike lanes, and incorporating traffic calming measures is paramount. Continuing with one-way conversions with tighter turning radius would be a start with some of the arterial road. The fatalities due to excessive speeds and vulnerable pedestrians need to STOP, not tomorrow, not when we have the time or money to do it. NOW. One of my first objectives would be to right the wrongs on the Red Hill and mitigate the number of deaths.
Each mode of transportation needs to be incorporated into neighbourhood design phases and street design for protection and safety cannot be substituted for aesthetics. There is a way to get both.
