Article: America is a Walking Disaster

This article from The Atlantic Cities explains how car-oriented design and policies have made suburban areas inhospitable for pedestrians.  For example, as one contributor to the Greater Greater Washington blog found out, it can take as much as 8 1/2 minutes to legally cross a suburban street!  How can we shift policy and design to better serve pedestrians?
