The Dangerous Three-Way Dance at NYC Street Intersections

Jason Kottke:

3-Way Street is a fascinating video by Ron Gabriel that highlights bad interactions between cars, bikes, and pedestrians at a typical NYC street intersection. There are lots of ways to show these interactions...the overhead view and highlighting are particularly effective design choices. Well done.

Video created by vimeo user ronconcocacola:

By summer 2010, the expansion of bike lanes in NYC exposed a clash of long-standing bad habits — such as pedestrians jaywalking, cyclists running red lights, and motorists plowing through crosswalks. By focusing on one intersection as a case study, my video aims to show our interconnection and shared role in improving the safety and usability of our streets. The video is part of a larger campaign I created called '3-Way Street'. Please see for more details. Music: Peter Gunn Theme by Art of Noise, available on iTunes
