Sorry to rain on the parade, but as nifty as this website is it will not make much difference to the number of people walking.

That's because perceived safety and the willingness to walk depends largely on how drivers are behaving.

So if you don't somehow take back the roads, be it with reduced speed limits or traffic calming, education or something else, websites like this are doomed to be marginalized.

Herman Turkstra has an amazing opinion piece in the Spec today:
