Being Good Neighbors…
Do you have any idea what your privileges and responsibilities are as a pedestrian? If a tree in your yard is blocking a stop sign at an intersection are you responsible? Are cars supposed to stop at a marked cross walk even if there isn’t a signal?
Nashville is both trying to become a pedestrian friendly city and solve its traffic issues – all while the population is exploding. This seems to be an impossible task, but I don’t think it is, and all of us want both issues to be solved: we don’t want to sit in traffic, and we want to be able to walk around safely in our neighborhoods. That is why for the next 12 weeks, we have decided that we are going to educate ourselves (and in turn our blog readers) about being responsible drivers and pedestrians. Our goal is to improve the driving/walking culture of East Nashville through education rather than enforcement. (Because, yes. Cars legally must stop if there is a pedestrian in the crosswalk.)
Obviously in a short blog post we cannot exhaustively cover any particular issue, offer legal advice, or really resolve any of these complex issues. But stay tuned over the summer because the best place to start is by educating ourselves so we can become advocates and examples.

If you missed this run last time, you certainly missed something. And that something would be Lenore street. After the run it’s down to NRC for pint night! This week’s pint night will feature injury screenings from Results Physiotherapy!
