Making the Streets Safe, For Animals

Over at one of my favorite blogs, Copenhagnenize, I found this interesting bit of information on how in many places there is money being spent in the acknowledgement that autos actually make it dangerous for animals to cross highways safely, yet investment in livable streets and walkable communities is next to nothing in many areas (try crossing Broad Street in Short Pump on foot). Interesting how we have figured out that streets are dangerous for Rocky and Bullwinkle but we haven’t managed to do the same for Jane and Jimmy. See copenhagenize here.
