Traffic emissions may pollute one in three Canadian homes

Traffic emissions may pollute one in three Canadian homes | SCV | Scoop.it
Air pollution could be spreading up to three times farther than thought, contributing to varying levels of air quality across cities, a trio of recently published studies from a team of engineers has found. One in three Canadians, and half of all Torontonians, lives within 250 meters of at least one major roadway. Poor air quality from traffic pollution is associated with a number of health issues.

Human Transit: How good are we at prediction?

Human Transit: How good are we at prediction? | SCV | Scoop.it
Transportation planning is full of projections -- a euphemism meaning predictions. Generally, when we need a euphemism, it means we may be accommodating a bit of denial about something. Predicting the future, at a time when so many things seem to be changing in nonlinear ways, is a pretty audacious thing to do. There are professions whose job it is to do this, and we pay them a lot to give us predictions that sound like facts. I have the highest respect for them (all the more because what they do is nearly impossible) but only when they speak in...

Solution to parking problems in suburban centers may not be more parking - The Boston Globe

Solution to parking problems in suburban centers may not be more parking - The Boston Globe | SCV | Scoop.it
An increasing number of suburbs, including Dedham, Hudson, Salem, and Stoughton, are turning to the parking study as the key to revitalizing struggling centers, and addressing gridlock in vibrant downtown destinations. Burdensome residential parking requirements that can restrict new development in town centers are being revisited, while the mentality of building parking structures or paving over valuable land to create surface lots is slowly giving way to more creative solutions to manage existing parking space, said Jessica Robertson, transportation coordinator for the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. Although one parking plan does not fit all, Robertson said that in most suburban communities the lack of parking is more likely a perception than an actual problem.
