This week on foot

In a clear case of adding insult to (literal) injury: Pedestrian cited after being hit by car on North Side in La Crosse.

Irritated by the poor street design and pedestrian un-friendly laws that help create situations like the one in La Crosse, Portland activists Protest for Pedestrian Rights.

In response, Portland's Mayor insists City of Portland "committed" to Pedestrian Safety.

Elsewhere, the battle over competing uses on public sidewalks rages on. In Iowa City a Group wants city to revisit panhandling--and Also would like smoke-free ped mall during the day. Wouldn't we all?
