Take a peek at the op-ed below when you get a chance. Schmitt and McGinn take a provocative stance on pedestrian safety. What are your thoughts about their opinions?

If you're not familiar, Angie Schmitt is journalist/planner who has been featured in Bicycling Magazine, and wrote for StreetsblogUSA for several years. She also authored the book Right Of Way. If you haven't read it, give it a whirl.

Mike McGinn is executive director of America Walks and a long-time climate and active transportation advocate. He was mayor of Seattle from 2009-13. #nmlfm
