Free Seminar: Safety Expert Peter Jacobsen

OTREC's first visiting scholar of the 2010-11 school year is Peter Jacobsen, P.E. a public health consultant and professional engineer who is widely known in transportation circles for "Safety in Numbers," which showed that the risk of pedestrians and bicyclists being hit by a motorist decreases as more people walk and bicycle. He will present his "Vision Zero" talk for the weekly transportation seminar series at Portland State University. The premise of the seminar will be that even if not all traffic crashes can be avoided, all severe injuries can.
