PROCEEDINGS OF THE SEMINAR ON BICYCLE/PEDESTRIAN PLANNING & DESIGN

The many facts of planning for bicyclists and pedestrians are considered in these Proceedings. Accident prevention is discussed in detail, including such aspects as the dangers to cyclists of parallel sewer grates, pedestrian regulation, and surfacing to be used on pedestrian walkways. Also considered are: age; mobility; planning for handicapped persons; health aspects such as air pollution and recreation; parking facilities; dual-mode buses; sidewalks; energy crisis; and regulations, both Federal and local. Crime and hazardous locations, traffic signals, moving sidewalks and personal rapid transit are also discussed, as is the use of time lapse photography for data collection.
