Let’s talk about our second guiding principle for transportation investment: Design for safety, not speed. t4america.org/platform 1/10
When it comes to priorities for designing our streets, transportation agencies—from the feds on down—have largely decided that speed is just more important than safety. 2/10
High-speed roads can be safe! They’re called interstates or limited-access highways. Remove all conflicts, like driveways and cross streets, bikes and people, and build wide, straight lanes. @StrongTowns 3/10

I live in Baltimore, work in the county, and don't have a car. People ask "How on earth do you do that commute without a car??" I normally just say that its a run->train->commute for simplicity.

But the story is so much more than that. Let me take you on my daily commute.
I jog from Upper Fells to the Camden Station Marc. Its a nice jog through Perkins, Little Italy, the Inner Harbor, and down Pratt Street. I hop on the train and enjoy about 18 minutes of internet time.

I get to Dorsey in Hanover, where I am usually the only one disembarking.
Dorsey is a Transit Oriented Development. A couple weeks ago, the Sun had an article about how Maryland is trying to really take advantage of areas around transit to develop.

Technically, what I am about to describe is my commute through a TOD.
