The View From Space – A Video

Posted on August 2nd, 2012 by Anna in News

Space Video

It’s a 3 Way Street

Posted on June 11th, 2011 by Anna in News

This video, created by Ron Gabriel, a student working on his thesis project, watches ONE intersection out of 12,370 in New York City and tracks the number of accidents that nearly happen because of carelessness on the part of drivers, bicycalists, and pedestrians.  Watch how he carefully shows people nearly colliding all over the place.

It’s a scary world out there, but it doesn’t have to be. If we all pay attention to the things going on around us, to the street signs and lights, and other people coming and going, these intersections wouldn’t be nearly as dangerous as they are. And that goes for intersections in cities all over the world. Including our very own Boston.

Check out the video below!
