SafeTREC Co-director Offer Grembek and Applications Program Manager SangHyouk Oum will present in this year's UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium, "Not Back to Normal: Mapping a Just Transportation Recovery from COVID-19" on October 21, 2020 in a session on Air Quality, Safety, and Well-Being Consequences of Transportation Impacts. This year's symposium will be a remote learning series that aims to explore transportation conditions before, during, and after COVID-19, and how post-COVID-19 policy and planning responses can lead to more just, equitable, and sustainable transportation systems.
Save-the-Date for Session on Air Quality, Safety, and Well-Being Consequences of Transportation Impacts
Date: October 21, 2020
Time: 9:30am - 11:30am (PDT)
When millions reduced their travel, local air quality improved and the rate and severity of traffic crashes decreased. But what were the impacts on individual mental health? And what can we learn about the personal psychological utility of travel by understanding the stressors imposed on those without access to a personal vehicle? Also, how are these observed travel changes impacting our understanding of transportation systems, which are derived from modeling and forecasting?
