In October of this year, the National Association of City Transportation Officials ("NACTO"), Bloomberg Philanthropies and Island Press - some of TransportiCA's most beloved organizations - released the Global Street Design Guide. Upon release, the Guide became, "the first-ever worldwide standard for redesigning city streets to prioritize safety, pedestrians, transit and sustainable mobility for an urban century."
As the United Nations celebrates the 66th "Human Rights Day" on 10 December, TransportiCA believes the Guide is essential in affirming the rights of humans under Article 13.1 - "Everyone has the right to freedom of movement..." The Guide introduces universal design standards affirming for all of us, not solely the right to movement, but to sustainable, livable, and most importantly, safe mobility.
TransportiCA believes the Guide is a monumental step toward dignified, healthy and equitable movement, and we would like to give away a copy to a reader who can answer correctly the following trivia questions:
1. Bloomberg Philanthropies selected 10 number of cities, as part of their new Global Road Safety Initiative in 2015, and NACTO's Global Designing Cities Initiative (GDCI) worked with representatives from 72 cities and 42 countries, as part of a Global Expert Network to develop the recently released Global Street Design Guide.
2. True or False: Traffic danger is a sporadic global health crisis responsible for 1.25 million deaths annually. [Traffic danger is a persistent, not sporadic global health crisis...]
3. When prioritizing users in street designs, which user should receive first priority? Pedestrian
