Global Street Design Guide to be Unveiled at NACTO Designing Cities Conference

Each year, more than 1.2 million people die globally from traffic fatalities. At least half of these are vulnerable users, such as people walking and bicycling. With many problems rooted in outdated codes and standards, there is an urgent need to redefine the role of streets in cities and provide guidance to shaping sustainable public spaces. On October 28, 2015, NACTO will unveil a new resource for designing urban streets around the world: the Global Street Design Guide.  Join NACTO Chair Janette Sadik-Khan at the 2015 Designing Cities conference in Austin for the official launch of this groundbreaking guide.
