SLOW IS THE NEW FAST And other radical ideas for improving road safety and travel time in Calgary

  • 16 Apr 2010
  • 10:30 - 14:29
  • Delta Bow Valley Hotel 209 - 4th Avenue SE

Join us for an unusual look at the world of cars, people and bicycles Traffic is a constant source of irritation for Calgarians and regularly ranks as one of the topics of chief concern in the
community. This is for good reason - we drive a lot and  incidents on the road are responsible for lost lives, trauma and hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.

What if the answer to improving this situation was actually to slow things down? What if there was less congestion and faster
travel times? What if taking away traffic signals and signs made driving, walking and cycling safer? Perhaps messing with the minds of drivers and pedestrians might actually help?

Safer Calgary wants you to help investigate these questions. Dutch traffic expert Paul van de Coevering will be in Calgary to engage in an interactive workshop that tackles Calgary’s traffic
issues with imagination and clear thinking.
