Apple's new CarPlay dashboard (!) is prompting a conversation about why regulators aren't taking action on "infotainment" systems that induce the very dangerous driving that manufacturers claim will do the opposite.
A surprising 17 percent of U.S. pedestrian deaths last year happened on roads where people theoretically should never be walking — and that troubling finding should prompt a conversation about why so many of them are doing it anyway.

Automated vehicle technology could improve labor conditions for bus drivers while improving safety and service for transit passengers and city-dwellers alike — but only if regulators act now, a new analysis argues.
New efforts by federal and state authorities to encourage the construction of housing in walkable and transit-rich communities suggests that many cities' best chance at progressive zoning reform will come from the top down, rather than the grass roots.
