Abstract

As I was working on this book, I took a break to make a presentation at a pedestrian safety meeting held at a branch of the Montgomery County Public Library in Germantown, Maryland, just north of Washington, DC. Two girls, children of one of the organizers, were eagerly passing around “pedestrian” gingerbread cookies, as about fifty people gathered on the cold winter afternoon. But despite the refreshments, attendees found little to celebrate. The meeting had been called soon after two residents, one a high school student, had been killed while walking in what is known as the “upcounty,” the northern section of Montgomery County where decades of agriculture are giving way to spread-out, automobile-oriented development.
