Is there an app out there that helps bicyclists to know safer routes? Like was stated, taking more right turns than lefts to get to the same location.

Picking up on the tools to facilitate people with disabilities using Uber, any tools planned for families to access Ubar more safely? (Car sits etc.?)

@Vickie I haven’t found anything that replaces going on the street. Google maps has some data but the ground truth can be very different.
Suzann Flowers
37:27
I only ever speculated about the headlights issue, is there anything that USDOT or other organizations are pushing auto industry to make changes on?
Vickie Eddleman
38:41
@ Jessica Cicchino, The headlights that are rated the highest, how bright are they to the oncoming drivers? Some of the newer headlights are so bright to me that they are blinding, which creates a new safety concern.
Suzann Flowers
39:28
@Vickie Eddleman, that is an excellent question, thank you for posting that I am also interested in that unintended issue
Judith Converse
40:38
@Jessica Cicchino does pedestrian AEB work in the dark even if the vehicle's headlights are off?
Brian Johnson
40:41
I personally feel the best enhancement to headlights is for a wider angle (think peripheral vision). I notice in my car, the heads lights are strong, but are straight forward so it's hard to see if someone is walking in an intersection I'm turning into. However, I notice when I drive my wife's car, her car's headlights have strong peripheral vision, and I can see a pedestrian in a intersection off to the side of my car. I don't feel people talk about this enough. Just my opinion of course.
Ryan Gates
42:11
@Brian that’s a really good point. Not just the brightness of headlights, the angle, width and way the light is cast is important for safety as well.

Angle and Direction of headlights are very important for on-coming traffic. Blinding these drivers needs to be a consideration, especially if pedestrians are also 'blinded' out.
Vicki Eggers
48:58
But there is also an issue with wider-angled headlights blinding oncoming drivers as well. I drive on two lane county roads and highways at night (no lights) and have had to almost stop because the oncoming vehicle's headlights were blinding me and I couldn't see where I was going.
Ernest Porter
50:36
Don't some vehicle have the ability to brighten the lights beyond the factory settings?
Vickie Eddleman
54:42
What does the law say about having to re-open sidewalks and crossings closed due to snow and ice removal? ...where they pile up and take a long time to melt.
Jon Kaplan
56:24
One of the best teaching experiences I have had was to go out with a manual wheelchair and try to get around a typical urban environment. This should be done with the assistance of someone walking behind just to make sure you don't get hurt, but it is very eye-opening and forever changed how I looked at sidewalk design.
Rachel Ruhlen
01:08:53
Stories about what people with disabilities experience in our environment are so powerful. Thank you for sharing those. Once you've been through PROWAG training (Public Right of Way Guidelines), you can't go anywhere without seeing how incredibly inaccessible every route is for so many disabilities.
Ryan Gates

Rachel Ruhlen

I'm very excited about what Uber is doing to decrease traffic deaths & injuries and its support of Families for Safe Streets. I think there is huge traffic safety potential in engaging companies that hire people who drive - whether for the company or personal - which since in a lot of cities ~90% of people drive, that's virtually every company.
Ryan Gates
01:12:23
Never mind, that was on my end
Ingrid Vandervort
01:14:29
I have to leave for another meeting-look forward to the presentation to review again and share.

Good advice Sally! Also, if you don't have a disability go on a walk sometime with someone who does. Quite illuminating.
