NC CHAPTER UPDATE

NC APBP kicks off their new chapter with a series of happy hour socials across the state at the end of January 2017. Individual chapter leaders dispersed across North Carolina are hosting each social and have worked together to coordinate the messaging. The chapter has received a great amount of interest promoting the kickoff and plans to use the momentum to identify individuals at the local level who would be interested in helping to coordinate a follow-up series of regional forums proposed in March 2017. Individuals are being sought to co-lead a forum, present a pechakucha or TED style talk, or lead a focus group.

DANGEROUS BY DESIGN 2016


Between 2005 and 2014, a total of 46,149 people were struck and killed by cars while walking. That averages out to about 13 people per day.

Smartgrowth America’s Dangerous by Design 2016 takes a closer look at the alarming epidemic of pedestrian deaths. The report ranks the most dangerous places for people walking by a “Pedestrian Danger Index.” It also explores who is most at risk of being struck and killed by a car while walking, including data that looks at pedestrians by age, race, ethnicity, and income.

Explore the online feature to see the full rankings of the 104 largest metro areas in the country and all 50 states, as well as interactive maps of where fatal collisions occurred.
