The Changing Face of Transportation





School is almost out!  If you are a parent, summer usually means learning a whole new summer routine.  And after a week or two, the countdown to August begins.


Thanks to our friends at, we have a few tips to help you survive.  This includes:

  • Don't abandon routine 
  • Regulate Screen Time Early
  • Don't forget the books
  • Ask for input

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

The view from the sidewalk
Last week, I helped kick off a bicycle-pedestrian assessment in Northern Virginia near the Wiehle-Reston East Station on the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority's Silver Line.  It was one of 52 DOT-led surveys of conditions for pedestrians and cyclists underway this year as part of our Safer People, Safer Streets initiative.

Our goal is to improve conditions for people on foot, riding bikes, or using mobility devices.  From 2011 to 2012, pedestrian deaths rose 6 percent, while bike fatalities went up almost 7 percent.  in that year, one pedestrian died every two hours.  We need to reverse these grim statistics, particularly because -for many people- cycling and walking are not just recreation; that's how they get around.  We've found that people who live in low-income and minority counties are even more at risk; more than a quarter of all bike trips are taken by people who make less than $30,000 a year.
