"Perils For Pedestrians" is a public affairs television series that looks at problems confronting pedestrians in communities like yours, and solutions to those problems from across the United States and around the world. Each 28-minute episode consists of several interviews with advocates, planners, engineers, and public officials, on a broad range of issues of concern to pedestrians. The program occasionally looks at bicyclists, transit, and broader issues of urban design and public health. Over the last dozen years, the host of the series, John Z Wetmore, has conducted interviews in all 50 states, and 11 foreign countries.
