  • The L.A. Department of Transportation has hired a sound artist Alan Nakagawa to work on the city’s program to eliminate pedestrian deaths. One of his potential ideas is to start a library of photos of roadside altars and “ghost bikes” created to honor those killed in traffic collisions. KPCC

  1. So we’re going to art our way out of pedestrian and cyclist fatalities caused by motorists instead of traffic calming, encouraging walkable infrastructure (more dense development near transit) and enforcing traffic laws? And Mr Kakagawa isn’t really sure about how to art our way out of this mess but he’s leaning towards focusing on death and tragedy so he can compile a database of ghost bikes that “might take years”. Way to go, LA!
