Bethesda, MD, March 08, 2007 --( The 101st episode of "Perils For Pedestrians" will be broadcast on The Universityhouse Channel on Tuesday, March 13. "Perils For Pedestrians" is a public affairs television series that looks at problems confronting pedestrians in their communities, and solutions to those problems from across the United States, and around the world. John Z Wetmore, host of the series, has interviewed advocates, engineers, planners, and public officials in all 50 states and in 9 foreign countries.

Among the stories on Episode 101, Wetmore looks at Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) in Sweden. ISA is an experimental technology that helps drivers to stay within the speed limit. ISA could save lives because vehicle speed is the single most important factor in pedestrian crash fatality rates.

Wetmore also talks with Ben Ross of the Action Committee for Transit in Maryland. He travels to Charleston, South Carolina, for Low Country Connections, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Active Living Partnership. And he learns about pedestrian signals from an engineer in Seattle.
