We watched this video in class on 2/28. The video demonstrates a few issues we’ll talk about over the next few weeks:
What are the challenges involved in a re-design of the shared-used path in the Panhandle (the video shows some of the different users and differences in speed)?To what degree do/should cyclists
To what degree do/should cyclists strictly obey traffic regulations (the video depicts a cyclist with a child running a red light)?
How has new cycling-specific infrastructure changed San Francisco’s streets (the video depicts construction of a separated bike lane on Oak St. and a bicycle traffic signal at Oak and Broderick)?
We can talk more effectively about these challenges if we collect evidence– through interviews, surveys, observation, counting, and measuring.
