How the Media Shapes Public Perception of Roadway Safety and What to Do About it

March 10, 2020

Pedal Love will host a briefing on Wednesday to discuss recommendations from a report on how media influences the way people think about and talk about street safety, safety improvements, and enforcement. It turns out that seemingly small word choices made by journalists, editors, and police reporting on crashes changes the way people understand them.

In this first short (half-hour) webinar, report authors Tara Goddard and Kelcie Ralph will introduce the study, discuss its findings, and answer questions. In April, Pedal Love plans to host another more in-depth webinar aimed at helping advocates apply the research findings in their work.

The webinar has been seeing a lot of nationwide interest from advocates. It will take place at 11 am Wednesday, March 11.
