"Shoot Your Commute"

Experience for yourself the impact that a street full of single-occupancy vehicles has on traffic and congestion!

Urban Ambassadors is bringing together sustainable transportation advocates in Greater Des Moines to recreate the famous Munster, Germany photo (see profile pic) in our fair city. Plus, have a fun after...-party to network and meet crazy, interesting, fellow residents!

The photo referred to illustrates the amount of space "consumed" by various modes of transportation. Volunteers will be spaced out on the street in relationship to each other, as if they were in various modes of transportation - it's a brilliant demonstration of the aggregate impact of individual transportation choices.

This event will take place Sunday, August 8, 2010 at 2:00pm on East Locust between 4th & 6th.
