Pedaling the Pueblo – Watching Over Pedestrians, Like a HAWK

Tucson is famous for lots of things: the stately Saguaro cactus, Sonoran-style hot dogs, and the HAWK crossing, or High intensity Activated crossWalK. You’ve seen HAWK crossings all over town, and have likely used one yourself to get across a major arterial street, but did you know the inventor of the HAWK crossing, Dr. Richard Nassi, has been living right here in Tucson for over 30 years and developed these crosswalks which have now been adapted for use throughout the United States and the world?

Join us in this episode as we dive into the history behind the HAWK’s development and learn about other types of crossing assistance, also in use in and developed for Tucson.

Pedaling the Pueblo – Watching Over Pedestrians, Like a HAWK


Pedaling the Pueblo is a mini-program and podcast that connects people to news and information about Tucson’s bicycle culture. A collective of bicycle enthusiasts host and produce weekly programs covering a wide variety of topics. From community events to questions about how bicycle funding works; tips to start riding more to interviews with local bicycling legends, Pedaling the Pueblo explores life on two wheels from a “people first” approach, allowing us all to have an open dialogue about how people move through our shared built environment.

Content is responsive to and driven by the community, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at ptp@kxci.org. You can also find us on Facebook.
