Carbon Foot Print

Oregroanian March 25, 2007 page B1: An article titled, A 26.2 mile Portland Ad, that former state Senator is among a group pushing to get a more science route for the Portland Marathon, which draws some 8000 participants. Hold on Senator, are you not in the 21-century. Carbon dioxide is a major cause of Global warming. Are you unaware that humans release carbon dioxide into the air, and that running causes them to release more into the atmosphere? The carbon footprint of this single event is 515 metric tons of CO2. If all those runners are going to talk the talk, they should begin to walk the run. Physical fitness is killing our planet.

Do Safety Corridors Decrease Accidents

In this article Lt. Marlene West of the Oregon State Patrol in the McMinnville office referring to the corridor states, ”It isn’t perfect, but it’s safer.” The data does not support that statement. Two graphs presented in the article, show that the traffic on the stretch of highway designated as a safety corridor has increased about 19 percent while the accidents on the highway increased as much as 25 percent. The data presented shows that the number of accidents has increased substantially more than the traffic while the number of fatalities remained constant. There is little doubt that safety corridors bring in double the amount of fines but according to the data provided they apparently do not reduce accidents or deaths. The purpose of these corridors is therefore unclear. It may well be that the money spent on the signs and extra patrols could be spend better elsewhere.
