Dan Allison is a Safe Routes to School Coordinator and a transportation advocate. I’m a League Cycling Instructor (#2301) and teach a variety of bicycling skills courses. I’m a walker, bicyclist, train and transit user. Though I do not own a car, I occasionally use one. I also occasionally fly, but less and less.
This blog does not reflect the views of my employer nor the organizations of which I am a member. I am not an engineer, planner, or law enforcement person, but I have extensive training in those areas. What I am is a person who constantly observes, documents, and reflects on our transportation system and how it works, and does not.
I live in mid-town Sacramento, and work in Carmichael and Citrus Heights.
Since I can’t possible see everything, I welcome your eyes. Let me know about issues and changes. If you have something thoughtful to say, please let me know and perhaps we can add it to this blog.
This is a moderated blog. I will not post anything from the cars-first crowd, the people who hate walkers, bicyclists, and/or public transit. Those people have plenty of places to have their ideas heard, and it isn’t here. However, I will approve comments from thoughtful people about how the transportation modes relate to each other.
