Not in Plain Sight: Dangerous Engineering Flaws in Winnipeg’s Design of Pedestrian Corridors
by Christian Sweryda
"Winnipeg has had several serious pedestrian crashes with many resulting in fatalities. These crashes have largely been occurring in pedestrian corridors (corridors) which consist of overhead lighted signs and flashing yellow beacons activated by a pedestrian push-button. There are two deficiencies inherent in the design of corridors that are largely related to the injuries and fatalities...There is huge potential for safer roads should the focus be redirected towards engineering improvements. This will take a change in culture, and widespread public advocacy if road safety is to ever be taken seriously."
