Perils for Pedestrians Episode 115

Topics in Episode 115:

  • We visit the Sugarhouse district of Salt Lake City, where new development neglects pedestrians.

  • We talk with a store manager about slower streets helping businesses.

  • A bicyclist looks at the need for better education and enforcement in Utah.

  • We learn about the active living partnership in Louisville, Kentucky.
