Charlie Zegeer, HSRC researcher and director of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), was recognized by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) with a 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was presented at the Pro Walk/Pro Bike conference in September. It recognizes individuals who have made a substantial commitment to the profession and who have shown excellence in the field of bicycle and pedestrian planning, design, advocacy or education. The award distinguishes those whose vision and determination have made their communities better places to bicycle and walk and who inspire others.
“Charlie is incredibly deserving of this honor,” said David Harkey, HSRC director. “His work has had a tremendous impact on making our roads safer and more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists in communities across the nation and internationally.”
Zegeer is a highly respected author in the field of transportation research, a leader in pedestrian and bicycle safety and a strong mentor to young professionals. His numerous reports and publications (150 and counting) are often cited and continue improving pedestrian and bicycle safety in the U.S. and around the world.
