The Environment Program welcomes guest speaker Jonathan Maskit from Denison University. Dr. Maskit will be discussing road sharing, law, and political action. Basically the idea is to take on, from political and phenomenological perspectives, one of the great impediments to cycling: having to share public space with larger, faster vehicles piloted by people who often do not know or do not care that cyclists have a right to use the roads.  Because of motorist malice, inattention, ignorance, etc. cycling is often a flat-out terrifying experience.  Cycling can (and has in some places) become a safe, healthy, environmentally-friendly, and even fun way to get around, but we have to reduce the terror first.
