Novel Idea: Involve Seniors in Making Streets Safer for Them

Usually a Streetfilm that is this NY-Centric I wouldn't re-post here except that with yesterday's discussion of two elderly women killed in a crosswalk it was interesting to see what New York City is doing to make it's streets safer for senior citizens. 

Community groups, the New York State Department of Health and Transportation Alternatives engaged in a series of outreach meetings with seniors, to find out specifically what their concerns with streets were before devising action plans.  I don't want to give away everything that they did to make the streets safer, but let's just say that removing unsignalized crosswalks wasn't part of the plan.
