The Most Dangerous Cities for Walking [infographic]

If I have to hear the word “walkability” one more time I am going to burn so many tires that all of New York city will suffocate. As an urban planning major, buzzwords like “walkability”, “sustainability”, “multi-mobile” and “density” are thrown around a lot. But this is not necessarily a bad thing.

My professors and the elite above them simply need to figure out a better way to propose such topics. Explaining to a classroom of college students, year after year, that certain streets are not walkable or bike-able is not going to fix the problem.

The more a person hears about how “scary” a street is to walk/bike by the more that person will NOT want to walk/bike. Yes, (shown by the infographic) streets in America are scary to walk on, but they are scary to drive on too! As soon as more people suck it up, get on their bikes, and trust their fellow man to not hit them with their gas fed death boxes the sooner we can get enough people out on the streets to show these ignorant comfort car whores that we do exist.

When this finally happens we can all band together into a safe powerful unit that will take over and own the fucking road. HUZZAH!

    Truly, vulgarity is not necessary in good journalism to make a point.

    Lighten up. What is vulgarity anyway? Maybe that is just the writers voice.

    yes, it’s scary to drive too, but when driving one has a whole lot of metal surrounding their body & loved ones. it’s not the same with walking/biking so the comparison doesn’t really hold up. i live in one of the cities on the outer ring of that infographic and while i walk when i can i am taking my life into my hands when i do so. i sure don’t trust my fellow man not to hit me because they are not trustworthy drivers. trust requires trustworthiness. we finally got a signal installed at my nearest corner, in a hipster neighborhood, after enough peds were killed.

    Can Lena Long kindly explain to me (and the rest of us) exactly why this is the fault of professors?
