Should We Start Painting Intersections in Minot With Art if it Makes Them Safer?

Part of making communities desirable places to live is making them safe. That can be a challenge when there are so many potential conflict points between cars and people. And when those two face off, the cars always win.

But what if the simple act of turning an intersection into a work of art made them safer? It turns out that isn’t just a goofy question, it’s a literal reality. When we put art down in the intersection, it gets safer for people and cyclists. And there’s probably the added benefit of making people proud of their place.

Can you think of any intersection in Minot where this make make sense? Perhaps by schools? Or maybe in downtown? For the full story check out the podcast from Next City linked below.
