What Missouri leader will take the challenge to make Missouri's streets safer for walking and bicycling?

The Surface Transportation Policy Project (STPP) release Mean Streets 2004 this week. According to a Salt Lake Tribune article about the report:
[T]he country's streets are getting even meaner. The majority of the nation's top 50 metropolitan areas report an increase in the pedestrian death rate over the past decade.

But Salt Lake City is bucking that trend - and in so doing, it is being held up as a model for how to improve pedestrian safety. . . .

"We have made this a top priority in my administration," said Mayor Rocky Anderson during a national telephone news conference about the report. "We undertook virtually every measure that we could to provide for pedestrian safety."

Salt Lake City-Ogden's Pedestrian Danger Index, which measures pedestrian deaths relative to how much people walk, dropped 44 percent between 1994-95 and 2002-03. Provo-Orem's danger index declined 4 percent. In 2002-03, seven pedestrians were killed in that Utah County area.

Anderson attributed the plunge to such measures as orange flags that make pedestrians more visible, enhanced fines against drivers, count-down timers that tell walkers just when the light will change, pedestrian-activated flashing lights, and "LOOK" signs imbedded in the pavement at crosswalks. Since the start of those programs, the number of accidents involving pedestrians has dropped 31 percent, according to the city.

The mayor took on the challenge when he took office in 2000, the same year Mean Streets ranked the Salt Lake City-Ogden area as the nation's 12th deadliest.
