Crossing to Safety

Due to the concentration of pedestrians and vehicles in the University of California, Berkeley, area, the four streets that make up the campus perimeter have been deemed dangerous. While the 1,232-acre campus and the four city blocks that surround it make up only six percent of the city of Berkeley, this small area was responsible for about 25 percent of automobile/pedestrian collisions during a nine-year period. Transportation educators and students at Berkeley diagnosed many of the problems on these streets and proposed solutions. The city of Berkeley lacks the funds to pursue some of the beneficial long term plans, leaving the residents of the campus area in danger of the unsafe environments.
