Path of Agency

When getting from point A to point B blurs the line of a pedestrian path one man is there carving a path of freedom.  Pedestrian traffic is serious business and no one fights for the right of way with the same swagger as The Crosswalking Kid. In 2008, 112 pedestrians were killed, accounting for 20% of all fatalities in Maryland. In 70% of the pedestrian fatalities, the pedestrians were at fault, according to police crash reports.  73% of the fatal pedestrian-involved crashes occur in the dark.  Of the pedestrians killed, 40% were alcohol-impaired.  Over 75% of the pedestrians killed were males.  So if it’s dark, you’ve had a few, and you have an adam’s apple you might want to look for the orange vest and the bright smile of Graham Coreil-Allen before you take those first steps.

You can learn more about Graham’s involvement in AIB and read the text of his commencement speech,visit his blog, or watch his youtube channel by clicking the words.

About Pepper

Being someone who is actively searching for ways to make what I have better I thought it would be useful to share my talents and discoveries with anyone who is interested. So much of what I do is made from things that are easy to access and are perfect projects to spice up a weekend. In the words of Bernice Fitz-Gibbens "Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there." I hope that you will join me each weekend for a little inspiration and fun.
