Great article, Ryan. I'd love to hear responses from those responsible for this area of our day-to-day lives.

I do have to point out though, that this 'train-and-blame' philosophy can be seen in so many walks of Life. Rather than one that addresses the Reasons Behind the Reasons. You know; developing genuine understanding of a problem and working solutions forward from there.

For example, high drug arrest rates within certain demographics, high prosecution rates, increasing jail populations...as opposed to examining just why drug use is so prevalent in these communities -or even in general- and addressing these issues accordingly.

So though pedestrian safety would appear to be a pretty simple issue, maybe we can take some degree of solace in the fact that what prevents us from 'getting it right' on that front is what prevents us from doing the same elsewhere.
