Road Signs Pedcast
The Road Diet
Does your neighborhood have safe sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike lanes? Ever wonder how street design can improve health? Curious how transportation systems can make places not only more connected, but also more equitable?
The ChangeLab Solutions' pedcast, Road Signs, is designed for public health practitioners and advocates interested in creating safe and active streets.
The pedcast is intended to accompany you on a walk around your neighborhood or office. Plug in your headphones, look both ways, and get moving! Learn about an approach to making existing streets safer—a “road diet”—with a story from Oakland, California.
