Roadscapes Wednesday: Road Safety Is A Design Problem

Welcome to the Roadscapes Wednesday segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Roadscapes Wednesday will feature roads and infrastructure related topics. Geek Alabama Editor / Publisher Nathan Young is often called the “road geek” for a good reason, Nathan loves roads and loves talking about roads!

North America has the deadliest streets out of any developed nation. We try to address this by putting the full responsibility on individuals, using police enforcement and public safety campaigns. While it is good to be conscious of your own safety, we must also consider the fundamental design flaw in American traffic engineering; how we design streets solely for the speed of vehicles while safety is neglected.
