Chuck Marohn will present a morning plenary session at the 2019 Georgia Walks Summit in Norcross and Peachtree, GA entitled Gross Negligence.

On a daily basis, we hear about people killed in car crashes. The deaths of pedestrians and children are particularly troubling, and yet these "accidents" keep happening. The solutions typically employed by our cities and state departments of transportation include lowering speed limits, installing crosswalks and erecting barriers, but none of these actions are truly solving the problem.

The people who design our streets have been grossly negligent. We need a radical rethinking of the way we address pedestrian safety issues—one that will make streets safer for everyone and make our towns more economically productive in the process.

A Gross Negligence presentation shines a vital light on pedestrian safety issues and presents real, long-term solutions for our dangerously designed streets.
