Streetfilms: Bikes and Pedestrians Cross Ahead of Cars

Great idea! In case you don’t know what an LPI is and how they make crossing a street safer for pedestrians, check out this great short video and you’ll see  how they make it safer for bicyclists too!

“NYC DOT has been implementing hundreds of LPIs (Leading Pedestrian Intervals) each year as part of the city’s Vision Zero initiative. The agency will study the results of letting cyclists use LPIs (first proposed by Council Member Carlos Menchaca), before deciding whether to make it permanent policy and expand the rule to other intersections.”

APCSC would like to advocate that Asbury Park include LPIs into the plan for Main Street, and include bicyclists’ signage.
