“Cities Safer by Design”

Ron Richings passes this on:

Safer

Cities Safer by Design is a global reference guide to help cities save lives from traffic fatalities through improved street design and smart urban development. Over 1.2 million people die in traffic crashes globally, mostly pedestrians, and that number is growing every year. This hands-on guide taps examples from cities worldwide and includes 34 different design elements to improve safety and quality of life.

It’s good: comprehensive (examples from developing cities as well as places like Vancouver), up-to-date and beautifully illustrated.
