TIME recognizes walkable communities advocate Dan Burden
May 20, 2010/
In their Innovators series, TIME Magazine calls workability guru, Dan Burden, one of the top six civic leaders:
He knows that slimmer roads are “leaner, safer and more efficient,” and that they take some of the stress off drivers too. “We tend not to like open, scary places, and we try to get through them quicker. Somehow the canopy effect of tree-lined streets slows traffic.” Burden can’t eliminate road rage. But for some drivers, riders and pedestrians across the country, he can create road repose.
