Large Vehicle Urban Driving Safety Program

Biking Elsewhere[B' Spokes: I found several aspects of this Vision Zero Large Vehicle safety video interesting.:
1) It was NOT done by the MVA but by San Francisco's MTA and their contractors are required to watch the video.
2) It shows a lot of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure you don't see here.
3) It explains why a lot of bike/ped enhancements work as well as what to do when driving and parking around them. Imagine that, a official source that tells trucks not to park in bike lanes. But be real if people are not told how to use something new are they supposed to know? And yes I well insult a lot of road engineers, these new designs are all that obvious to a car centric audience (most of the people driving.)

I will strongly assert that for many people roads are for cars to go fast on and there needs to be a lot of education that goes out to explain why slowing down is a good thing and how to share road space with cyclists and pedestrians. This video is a great start, now to see stuff like this happen in Maryland.]
