Climate change? There's an app for that.

Poverty? A social entrepreneur with a TED talk has it figured out.

It was a worldview that flattered millennials' sense of ourselves as changemakers while conveniently ignoring the systemic barriers to real change.

"The ideas that tended to take priority on the TED stage were individualistic, future-oriented, and technophilic, more likely to celebrate the transformative power of innovation than to grapple with its unintended consequences."

Sadly true. No-one wants to pay thousands of dollars to hear talks about dealing with the complex consequences of simple ideas.

Traffic engineers build roads that invite crashes because they rely on outdated research and faulty data

A traffic engineer argues that, contrary to his profession鈥檚 view, 鈥榟uman error鈥 is not the main cause of deaths in car crashes in the US.

Traffic engineers build roads that invite crashes because they rely on outdated research and faulty data

More pedestrians and bicyclists are being killed on U.S. streets than at any time in the past 45 years
鈥 over 1,000 bicyclists and 7,500 pedestrians in 2022 alone.

Vehicle size is a big part of this problem.

A recent paper by urban economist Justin Tyndall found that increasing the front-end height of a vehicle by roughly 4 inches (10 centimeters) increases the chance of a pedestrian fatality by 22%.
The risk increases by 31% for female pedestrians or those over 65 years, and by 81% for children.

It鈥檚 hard to argue with physics, so there is a certain logic in blaming cars for rising traffic deaths.
In fact, if a bicyclist is hit by a pickup truck instead of a car, Tyndall suggests that they are 291% more likely to die.

Yet automakers have long asserted that if everyone simply followed the rules of the road, nobody would die. -- Vehicle size is irrelevant to that assertion.
My discipline, traffic engineering, acts similarly.

We underestimate our role in perpetuating bad outcomes, as well as the role that better engineering can play in designing safer communities and streets.

Police investigate crashes and inevitably look to see which road users,
including drivers, pedestrians and cyclists,
are most at fault.

It鈥檚 easy to do because in almost any crash, road user error appears to be the obvious problem.

This approach helps insurance companies figure out who needs to pay.
It also helps automakers and traffic engineers rationalize away all these deaths.

Everyone
鈥 except the families and friends of these 4 million victims
鈥 goes to sleep at night feeling good that bad-behaving road users just need more education or better enforcement.

But road user error only scratches the surface of the problem

Who creates dangerous streets?

When traffic engineers build an overly wide street that looks more like a freeway, and a speeding driver in a giant SUV crashes, subsequent crash data blames the driver for speeding.

When traffic engineers provide lousy crosswalks separated by long distances, and someone jaywalks and gets hit by that speeding SUV driver, one or both of these road users will be blamed in the official crash report.

And when automakers build gargantuan vehicles that can easily go double the speed limit and fill them with distracting touchscreens, crash data will still blame the road users for almost anything bad that happens.

These are the sorts of systemic conditions that lead to many so-called road user errors.

Look just below the surface, though, and it becomes clear that many human errors represent the typical, rational behaviors of typical, rational road users given the transportation system and vehicle options we put in front of them.

Look more deeply, and you can start to see how our underlying crash data gives everyone a pass but the road users themselves.

Everyone wants a data-driven approach to road safety, but today鈥檚 standard view of crash data lets automakers, insurance companies and policymakers who shape vehicle safety standards off the hook for embiggening these ever-larger cars and light-duty trucks.

It also absolves traffic engineers, planners and policymakers of blame for creating a transportation system where for most Americans, the only rational choice for getting around is a car.

Automakers want to sell cars and make money. And if bigger SUVs seem safer to potential customers, while also being much more profitable, it鈥檚 easy to see how interactions between road users and car companies
鈥 making seemingly rational decisions
鈥 have devolved into an SUV arms race.

Even though these same vehicles are less safe for pedestrians, bicyclists and those in opposing vehicles, the current data-driven approach to road safety misses that part of the story.

This can鈥檛 all be fixed at once. But by pursuing business as usual, automakers and traffic engineers will continue wasting money on victim-blaming campaigns or billboards placed high over a road telling drivers to pay attention to the road.

A better starting point would be remaking the U.S.鈥檚 allegedly data-driven approach to road safety by reinventing our understanding of the crash data that informs it all.

The key is starting to ask why.

Why did these road users act as they did?

Why didn鈥檛 they follow the rules that were laid out for them?

Bad road user behavior shouldn鈥檛 be excused, but a bit of digging below the surface of crash data unearths a completely different story.

Figuring out which road user is most at fault may be useful for law enforcement and insurance companies,
but it doesn鈥檛 give transportation engineers, planners, policymakers or automakers much insight into what they can do better.

Even worse, it has kept them from realizing that they might be doing anything wrong.

They took part in Apache ceremonies. Their schools expelled them for satanic activities

Educators on the Fort Apache Reservation have repeatedly condemned teens for participating in a sacred dance. It follows a pattern of Christian discipline begun more than a century ago

This story is staggering!
A group of young #Apache women who participated in the #Sunrise Dance which celebrates coming of age as Changing Woman (in other words it is a sacred #menarcheal #ritual) were then expelled from their (Lutheran extremist) school for 'satanic practices'.

'Maria, a younger woman in her late 30s, was there to share a similar story. The school board found that she had also participated in what they considered a satanic ceremony. Her children were not allowed to return to school the next year. The school had decided to penalize the children for the perceived sins of their mother.

Astonishingly, this pattern of Christian discipline, started more than a century ago, had never stopped.'
