The topics for this evenings conversations will be:

  • Dutch traffic Laws: liability of motorized vehicles vs slow modes of traffic and how these Laws came about. A comparison with Calif.
  • Cycling and retail: students analyze several interesting international studies and have reached out to local business on Main Street Santa Monica to interview retailers.
