Houston’s “Pedestrian Pete” Has a Bone to Pick

Meet Pedestrian Pete, otherwise known as Houston notable Peter Brown.

Brown, a former city council member and director of the urbanism group Better Houston, is conducting an ongoing video critique of this Texas city's pedestrian environment.

Watch the verbal tongue lashing Pete delivers to Houston's public agencies when he encounters a utility pole in the sidewalk. Pete is our kind of guy!

You can follow Pete's adventures in walking at his new, elegantly designed blog Pedestrian Pete. (It has a nice ring, doesn't it?)

We're looking forward to seeing what Houston's pedestrians are up against.
