Selecting roadway design treatments to accommodate bicycles( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The manual is designed to assist transportation planners and engineers in selecting roadway design treatments to accommodate bicycles. This is the first attempt to provide comprehensive guidelines for this process. The manual describes the assumptions, principles, and approaches used to develop the recommendations; provides a model planning process for identifying a network of routes on which designated bicycle facilities should be provided to accommodate bicyclists of moderate ability (casual adult riders and children); and recommends design treatments and specifications for roadways to serve different types of bicyclists under various sets of traffic operational factors

Uniform traffic control and warning messages for portable changeable message signs( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to develop and test word and symbol traffic control and hazard messages for portable changeable message signs (PCMSs). The messages were designed for the standard PCMS with three lines of eight characters. First, a comprehensive listing of candidate PCMS messages was developed. This was done by interviewing State highway engineers, surveying PCMS manufacturers and questioning motorists. In those situations where subjects did not express an overwhelming sign preference additional field testing was done. The detection distances of the candidate messages were determined using a PCMS under both day and night conditions

Colorlines : news for action( )

in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"ColorLines has been building a home for journalism in service to racial justice since 1998. Our multiracial team of writers, producers and photographers cover stories from the perspective of community, rather than through the lens of power brokers. We consider racism a structural problem that demands structural, rather than solely person solutions ... We cover a wide range of stories, both those in which the stakes are uniquely important to particular communities of color and those that impact racial justice broadly. We work to bring context to the big issues of the day and to document stories that mainstream media overlook. And we help our community members take action based on the stories we're covering."--About us
Work zone traffic control delineation for channelization by Kenneth S Opiela( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a study of the delineation requirements for work zone traffic control. The research included a comprehensive review of past studies and current practices, and an examination of current standards. It was concluded that, in spite of the increasing number of different types of channelizing devices, there appears to be no scientific basis for the spacing criteria for the use of devices for channelization purposes in the taper or tangent sections of a work zone. A laboratory-based testing procedure was used to determine the most appropriate spacing configuration. An interactive video system was used to test subject recognition distances of eight different device types spaced at the standard distance, 1.5 times and 2.0 times the standard distance. Over 240 subjects were tested

Traffic control operations for older drivers( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this project were to define the problems older drivers and pedestrians have at intersections, and make recommendations for changes. A literature review, a detailed accident analysis, and eight focus groups were conducted to identify the specific kinds of traffic-control-related problems experienced by older drivers and pedestrians at intersections. Three problem areas were targeted. The Left-Turn Signal Comprehension Study examined the lack of understanding associated with a variety of protected and permitted left-turn signal displays. Older pedestrians frequently indicated that they don't have enough time to cross the street. This complaint is exaggerated by the lack of understanding of the clearance--Flashing DON'T WALK--phase. The Driver Signal Response and Stopping Behavior Study compared the responses of older and younger drivers to amber onset and the braking ability of older and younger drivers
Turning to each other, not on each other : how school communities prevent racial bias in school discipline ; a preliminary report by Susan Sandler( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report identifies and describes schools with promising practices for preventing racial bias in school discipline, examining connections between the schools' approaches and actual discipline outcomes. The schools selected to be profiled exhibited positive cultural environments and meaningful approaches to discipline. All had predominantly students of color, with most qualifying for free or reduced lunch. None relied on discipline approaches that excluded, alienated, or discarded students. The schools created learning environments that were safe and academically rigorous. All incorporated the idea of turning to one another in both policies and everyday practices. Consistently, they turned to students, families, and each other to solve problems. These schools emphasized approaches that invested in students' growth and development, rejecting the notion that some young people are bad. Discipline policies and practices embodied the school culture. At the district, state, and federal level, it is necessary to develop policies, funding, and legislation that supports caring and culturally responsive schools. Three appendixes present: supplements to school profiles; how to analyze data on suspensions and expulsions; and methodology and sources of information. (Contains 10 references.) (Sm)

Older pedestrian characteristics for use in highway design by Richard L Knoblauch( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project was to develop traffic planning and engineering guidelines for the design of pedestrian facilities that are sensitive to the needs of older pedestrians. A detailed task analysis and literature review were conducted to identify the aspects of the pedestrian's tasks that are difficult for older persons, including motor, sensory, perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral factors. Several activities were undertaken to identify specific problems experienced by older pedestrians that could be addressed by changes in design standards and operational practices. These activities included analysis of accident exposure data, a survey of older pedestrians, focus group discussions, and a survey of practitioners. It was determined that older pedestrians experience difficulties at signalized intersections and often do not have sufficient time to cross. A field study was conducted to determine the walking speed, startup time, and stride length of older pedestrians. More than 7,000 pedestrians in 4 cities were observed in order to measure these parameters. Specific recommendations for changes to highway design and operational practices are described
Facing the consequences : an examination of racial discrimination in U.S. public schools by Rebecca Gordon( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1999, community organizations in several U.S. cities studied their local school districts to determine how they measured up in terms of racial justice. Using the computerized Racial Justice Report Card, they gathered data from 12 school districts. Only one district (Boston, Massachusetts) received a passing grade, and it was only a D. Results found glaring inequalities and discrimination in the public schools. African American students especially, along with Latino and Native American students, were suspended or expelled in disproportionate numbers. Students of color were more likely to drop out or be pushed out of school and less likely to graduate than were white students. They also had less access to advanced classes or programs for gifted students. The racial makeup of the teaching corps rarely matched that of the student body. This report recommends that all school districts be required to keep and publish annual key statistics on racial equity; schools must act immediately to correct uneven application of the most severe disciplinary actions; and schools must end academic tracking and open the way for all students to participate in a challenging curriculum. Appendixes contain results of the racial justice report cards for individual school districts and the text of California Senate Bill 81, which mandates collection and publication of key data for the state's public schools.
