I Am Traffic: The Beginning

8:50 a.m.: We are 10 minutes away from the beginning or the creation of a new national bicycle education program. I’m in Orlando for the I Am Traffic bicycle education colloquium. I’ll be posting updates on this post through the weekend.

10:00 a.m.: Keri Caffrey’s opening remarks entitled Achieving A Vision.

10:05 a.m.: Dan Gutierrez is giving a presentation about the six Es: Equality, education, engineering, enforcement, encouragement, and evaluation. I Am Traffic will be a national organization to “move the six Es forward.”

10:10 a.m.: “Lane control is normal and reasonable and should be codified in law.”

10:40 a.m.: Motorists use the street by privilege; they require training, state licencing, and mandated insurance. Pedestrians and bicyclists use the street by right as users of a public commons.

11:10 a.m.: Next talk is Journeys From Home by Robert Seidler. JFH is an education program for empowering children — it teaches the identification of edges ( searching and seeing skills) to help children navigate their environments.

11:35 a.m.: Pedestrian and bicycle education is in every state education mandate, according to Roger DiBrito. So what is Missouri doing to empower children to travel the streets of our communities?

11:40 a.m.: DiBrito challenges the idea of “safe routes” to school Instead, children should be empowered with the knowledge of safe movement to make their own choices how to negotiate their environments.
