The Northwestern report confirmed that the cameras have significant safety benefits and noted a never-before-documented “spillover effect” that is also resulting in less red light running at intersections that don’t have the cams.
Richard Pallardy was relatively lucky. Unlike many crash victims, he survived. And yet his case is representative of Chicago's larger hit-and-run problem.
If San Francisco doesn’t want to end up flooded, it better learn from the Dutch. That was the theme of a panel discussion held yesterday afternoon at the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR)’s downtown location. “Holland has a culture of urgency. Compared to our experiences here, they’re not hung up about […]

Raleigh should be striving for housing prices that offer choices to all levels of the socioeconomic scale.

With transit holding steady and cycling surging, cities find themselves in an interesting position. They’d like to encourage more of this kind of “mode shift” -- but how?
A healthy debate is swirling around Northeast Ohio's “spatial mismatch” between people seeking work and the employment centers where jobs are moving.
While improving system performance is an absolute good that all transit agencies should pursue, it does not necessarily mean that a city will see improvements in job accessibility for low-income people of color.
