Web Discussion: Using Crosswalk Laws as a Framework for Pedestrian Safety

February 25, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Using the law as the framework for pedestrian safety campaigns is not the go-to choice for most safety advocates. Yet, when someone gets hurt or the police are urged to “do something,” it is the traffic law that governs what can be done.

In this discussion forum from America Walks, pedestrian law advocate and lawyer Ray Thomas (Portland, Oregon) will present an overview of the nation’s crosswalk laws [download here].  Ray’s presentation will give attendees a better understanding of the legal framework that supports each pedestrian’s rights.

This is an interactive discussion forum with a short presentation and discussion among participants. Please submit advance questions below.  Participation is free but registration is limited to the first 65 registrants.

Note: The published event time is in Eastern Time.
