Hoboken transportion solutions to be featured in NYC

City of Hoboken announces:

HOBOKEN TRANSPORTATION & PEDESTRIAN SAFETY SOLUTIONS TO BE FEATURED AT “STOP SPEEDING SUMMIT” IN NYC
Hoboken’s innovative solutions to improve pedestrian safety and reduce congestion will be featured at a “Stop Speeding Summit” this month. The event, hosted by Transportation Alternatives at the NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, is a groundbreaking summit to address the pervasive effect speeding has on myriad aspects of our lives, from the health of children precluded from outdoor play to the billions of dollars that crashes cost society in medical, emergency services, rehabilitation, property damage and travel delay costs every year.
Presenting on behalf of Hoboken will be Ian Sacs, Director of the Transportation and Parking Department. He will be showcasing the various programs that have made Hoboken so well known around the country for prioritizing pedestrian safety and walkability, such as Corner Cars, the recently implemented “Twenty is Plenty” awareness campaign to encourage drivers to slow down, and “Hoboken Daylighting” – the installation of inexpensive poles at intersections to improve visibility between vehicles and pedestrians.
The Zimmer Administration’s transportation and parking solutions have been recently featured in a wide range of print media and professional journals including the New York TimesUniversity of California Berkeley Access JournalUrban Transportation Monitor, and most recently, on the front cover of theNew Jersey League of Municipalities Magazine (November 2010).
Residents may attend by registering for the event for free at the link provided below.
