More > infrastructure like sidewalks and crosswalks. Recent research shows that 2 of 3 children who live in walking distance but are currently driven to school do so because it is more convenient for parents. Policymakers and planners have few tools to estimate the effectiveness of SRTS interventions. We used a survey to better understand how SRTS interventions affect walking rates, identifying how parental attitudes and time constraints affect intervention effectiveness. This study compares results of stated preferences with on-the-ground evaluations of Portland’s SRTS program (collected concurrently for a separate project.) The project conducted a series of focus groups with parents at schools in the SRTS program. Focus groups results provide more in-depth information about parental attitudes and time constraints.< Less

No aircraft is absolutely safe. This book is about Aviation, from learning to fly, becoming a test pilot, flight testing, demonstrating on some of the third world’s worst airfields, then... More > specializing in Avionics and finally joining the Board of the UK Civil Aviation Authority, helping to formulate the regulations that the author had spent so many years living by. Many stories are told, including flying with the legendary Howard Hughes when the world thought him a mad recluse, and testing many aircraft including all three V Bombers, an almost unique experience. The book,very well illustrated, makes the point that flying is inherently risky, that regulations always try to quantify acceptable risk, that safety is a cost, and that test pilots have to sell their aircraft and should not try to make an aircraft safer than the rules require. It emphasizes the almost unbelievable changes in aviation in one working lifetime, whilst painting a picture of a much simpler world, now gone beyond recall.< Less

For more than 30 years, the government has been ramming cars into walls in an effort to make car crashes safe. The public has been conditioned to believe that seatbelts, airbags and more... More > "crashworthy" vehicles are the best ways to protect us from harm on the roads. Meanwhile, the most basic strategies to deter dangerous driving and prevent crashes have been ignored. "It's No Accident" provides a rare glimpse into how the government got seduced by the promise of "safe crashing." It then examines the major factors involved in crashes today, including speeding, aggressive driving, distractions (e.g. cell phones) and drowsy driving. The author reveals that many dangerous behaviors are now promoted by businesses, and that drivers who kill often walk away with just a small fine. This expose is a must-read for anyone concerned about what's happening on our roads and how to stop it. Now available also through Amazon.com. **Questions about this book or trouble with your order?
