Does this look familiar, Atlanta?

Promote pedestrian communities, go to the PEDS website below and learn how you can help Atlanta become a more pedestrian/bike-friendly city.

One of my earliest memories of moving to Atlanta was going to pick up my son from school. I grabbed my stroller, strapped-in the baby and started walking…I went a block when I realized ‘walking in Atlanta’ can be a bad idea. The sidewalks were broken and they’d end abruptly. It was crazy. I ended up at a gas station on Glenwood Avenue waiting for a ride. This is an issue that must be addressed: http://www.peds.org.
