Chris Cherry, an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, wrote an article for The Guardian. Cherry has done extensive research on electric bikes in China and launched UT’s electric bike sharing system. His article reviews observations of increased e-bike use in China, a country badly inflicted by pollution. Cherry summarizes that
WBIR-TV and WATE-TV and other local outlets featured a UT study which analyzed the dilemmas in sustaining red light camera programs to determine if traffic control measures intended to boost red light revenue—such as shortening yellow light time or increasing the speed limit on a street—compromise safety. The study by professors Lee Han, Chris Cherry
It’s a common driving predicament: As you approach the intersection, the light is yellow. Do you hit the brakes or face a red light camera fine? Professors at UT have analyzed this issue to determine if traffic control measures intended to boost red light revenue result in compromised safety.
Electric vehicles will be on display May 1 through 3 at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy while a conference is under way for industry professionals, government agencies, and communities to discuss planning for the growing electric-drive vehicle market. The display, which is free and open to the public, will be on the plaza in front of the Baker Center. Cars are on loan from the Tennessee Valley Authority and GM.
