Walkable, Pedestrian-Friendly Streets

All transportation begins with pedestrians. At some point, we must get out of our cars or other means of transportation and walk from place to place. Unfortunately, not enough attention has been given in the past to the creation of walkable, pedestrian-friendly streetscapes. If we want to reduce air pollution and energy usage from transportation, however, we need to reclaim our streets to include a place for pedestrians.
