Cliff and Emily talk about local trail grant applications for the Humboldt Bay Trail and the Eureka Waterfront Trail, Safe Routes to School, and disturbing data just out from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for 2012. Some unfortunate trends include, a 6% increase in pedestrian fatalities over the previous year, alcohol played a part in 48% of all traffic related pedestrian fatalities, and one fifth of all pedestrian fatalities are hit and run accidents.
