Dangerous by Design:  A challenge for change
Wednesday, April 19, 2017, noon to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Time

Those of us in state, county and city government or the private sector, whether we are in engineering, planning, land development, regulation, education, law enforcement or any other capacity need to work collaboratively to solve the problems highlighted by the report “Dangerous by Design.” Eight of the top 10 regions in the country are in the State of Florida. On top of our challenges concerning pedestrian and bicycle safety, fatalities from traffic crashes have gone up 23% in the last two years, from 2,494 to 3,057 fatalities from 2014-2016. This problem needs statewide attention to be solved. Please join the City of Orlando’s Billy Hattaway to discuss the challenge and what can be done about it.  Find out more about Dangerous by Design.
