L.A. Street Summit Tommorow

Tomorrow is the LA Street Summit, formally the LA Bike Summit, which has broadened it's focus to include pedestrian issues, transit issues, and look at street reform more holistically. A great write up on the opening lecture yesterday by Janette Sadik-Kahn can be found at Streetsblog LA, thanks to the always amazing Damien Newton. It was highly and motivating and enlightening to hear so many amazing speakers and motivated attendees last year, and I'm sure it will be even bigger this year.

Here is a clip of the inspirational Sadik-Kahn of the NYCDOT, who has led a charge to transform the city by opening more spaces to pedestrians and adding more miles of bike lanes in a couple years than L.A. has done in decades.
