Perils of Pedestrians debuts on BCTV
When speaking with other community TV station managers I always ask whether they have discovered any interesting programs that serve the needs of their community. That is how I learned about "Perils of Pedestrians". It is a monthly television series promoting awareness of issues affecting the safety of people who walk and bicycle.The program interviews advocates and government planners about problems such as missing sidewalks and crosswalks, dangerous intersections, speeding traffic, and obstacles to wheelchair users and people with disabilities; and solutions to such problems. This may not at first seem very interesting but I found the show quite interesting especially when it showcased innovative solutions that some communities have found to solve problems that we in Waldo County might be facing.
