Today on the Streetsblog Network, people are talking about safety, among other things. Bike Portland
has a post on how the number of bike commuters is up in that
bike-friendly city and the number of traffic injuries to bicyclists is
down, while Bike PGH wants to see some local response to the world's number-one killer of children: traffic crashes.

Plus, Car Less Ohio links to a great petition from the Rails-to-Trail Conservancy, and Transportation for America calls for accountability on the "green" recovery package from Obama and the Congress.
