A recent article in The City Fix lists seven ways to make a city safer.  If you have a minute, it’s a well-written, informative piece.

And if you don’t have a minute, here are quick bullet points on the seven principles:

1.  Avoid urban sprawl.

2.  Slow down road traffic.

3.  Ensure main streets are safe for everyone, not just cars.

4.  Create dedicated space for pedestrians.

5.  Provide a safe, connected network for cyclists.

6.  Ensure safe access to high-quality public transport.

7.  Use data to detect problem areas.
