Norman Garrick - Street Networks Affect Safety

Norman Garrick, CNU Board Member and professor at the University of Connecticut, has been looking at street networks for a number of years now.  When living in Davis California, he noticed it was a bit safer even though there were many more pedestrians and cyclists.  After more research, it became apparent that denser more connected street networks were safer.  In this discussion we had at CNU 19, he discusses how street networks affect safety.
