In 1922, the city became concerned with all the traffic accidents happening on the streets and began a safety campaign. Posters like this one with “Aunty J. Walker” admonished drivers and pedestrians to be alert.

Two preventable deaths in Cobb County in one week, as people try to cross deadly roads.
There have been two pedestrian deaths this week in Cobb County, where I grew up. Both were likely preventable by better road design.
The first pic, below, shows the spot where a man died while crossing Cobb Parkway. Notice the bus stop on the right. There’s no crosswalk in sight in either direction for transit riders, or for anyone else who needs to walk across the road between these destinations.

The next image shows the spot where a woman was killed, in front of her grandchildren, while trying to walk from a store on Delk Road. There's no sidewalk, and no crosswalk at the traffic light. There should be both.
Tumblr media
I shudder to think of how many people blame these pedestrians for "making bad decisions" and not "taking responsibility" by walking a mile away to get to a safer crossing spot. Stop blaming pedestrians for their own deaths.
The onus for safety is on Cobb County leaders. They need to make better decisions about road building and take responsibility for these deadly designs which should never have been approved. 
Yes, roads aren’t the only contributor to pedestrian deaths. Automobile design, impaired driving, and other factors play a part in these tragedies. But road design is arguably the element that is being most poorly addressed. 
Studies show that these kinds of wide roads, pictured above, are the most dangerous for pedestrians. Car speeds are high, businesses and other destinations for walkers are all around, and there are many lanes to cross. These roads need to be providing an extra level of safety for walking, not less. 
[I've sent this text and these photos in an email to Cobb Commission Chairwoman, Lisa Cupid.]

PEOPLE, TRAFFIC AND LIGHTS - OSLO, #Norway.
#Anoitecer de inverno no centro de #Oslo. Gosto muito de fotografia de rua neste horário de transição entre o dia e a noite, quando as #luzes acendem, o #trânsito intensifica, as #pessoas se apressam para voltarem para casa...
Esses horários geram composições bem dinâmicas, com várias coisas acontecendo ao mesmo tempo.
Aqui usei uma grande angular clara e obtive ótima estabilidade na mão, sem tripé.
