really liked it
bookshelves: sociopolitical
Read from November 12 to December 05, 2011

A riveting title that blows the cover off of what we've been told and come to believe about traffic safety and the transportation field. Explained so many of the annoying things you see drivers do, gave insight into my own driving habits. Covers a lot of research that's been done on driving/drivers. Most eye-opening was that many of the things traffic engineers and departments of transportation do to make the roads 'safe' really doesn't. Really makes a case for smarter, better designed and more pedestrian-friendly cities.
