About ME…

Terence Morris, a native Tulsan, has been an advocate for social change “Empowering people to help people in PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION (Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education) for nearly 5 years.  It all started when he was actually hit in a protected and marked pedestrian crosswalk.

Dedicated to Creative Solutions “Impacting Our World”

Since 2013, Terence has been online helping to caudal a Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education, curriculum, for an online listener base of over 900,000 AGS specificity survey participants.

An Advocate for Social Change in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Terence Morris has been employed in a capacity as advocate for social change for over 20 years before his pedestrian crosswalk accident.

Recognition and Achievements in Tulsa, OK Community

Granted several academic and professional scholarships to college, he has lead meritoriously in current political and social rhetoric.  In 2014, The Oklahoma Department of Labor, guaranteed him training, at Tulsa Community College, through The Manufacturing Standards Skills Council, which is certified by several professional manufacturing boards and agencies.  The purpose of the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council Certified Production Technician (CPT) program in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is to recognize through certification individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production at the front-line (entry-level through front-line supervisor) through successful completion of the certification assessments. The goal of the CPT certification program is to raise the level of performance of production workers both to assist the individuals in finding higher-wage jobs and to help employers ensure their workforce increases the company’s productivity and competitiveness. In an effort to stimulate interest in Public Transportation Policy especially road and surface construction projects. The Oklahoma Department of Education in 2015 granted Terence Morris a scholarship to attend OSHA 10 Construction Zone and Workplace Safety Training at the, Lemley Campus, of Tulsa Technology Center.  Terence went on to learn First-Aid, CPR, AED, Work-Zone Flagger and Fork-truck operation.

Moving toward Accreditation

Terence Morris has achieved success outside of community leadership through his participation in volunteer activities and the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, Volunteers of America, The Mental Health Association and PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION.  He also volunteered to canvas during former Mayor Kathy Taylor’s campaign and served as a peer mentor in several core counseling activities such as Agape Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation; The Oklahoma Driving Under the Influence Group; Oklahoma Gambler’s Anonymous; The Care: Drug and Alcohol Accident Victim’s Panel; and forums in Marriage & Divorce Counseling; Discrimination:  Racism, Sexism & Wage Discrimination; and Excessive Online Video-Gaming Disorder’s.

Petitioning District 5 Councilor Karen Gilbert

PACE TULSA wants to hear from Karen Gilbert, District 5 Councilor for The City of Tulsa Oklahoma. And any of her constituencies.  Please email him:  OtherGQ@gmail.com

PACE TULSA AGS DOES NOT DISCLOSE ORGANIZATIONAL PARTICIPANT(S) OR THE SPECIFICITY SURVEY CONDUCTOR(S).

PACE TULSA AGS bars participants and survey respondents from acknowledging the relationship.  However, over time details from educational enlightenment activities have leaked out and more pedestrian crosswalk respondents have been identified. PACE TULSA AGS makes every effort to ensure that survey participant’s confidentiality is maintained.  If at any time administration becomes aware of maximized exposure PACE TULSA AGS will remove study information from the World Wide Web and other intranet service provider’s.

“I whole-heartedly believe the opportunities of mercy that abounds us are created within the ‘spirit of benevolence.’”

About PACE TULSA Core Measurements

Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education Core Measurements.  By Terence Morris, Founder, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION.  October 19, 2017.  2:47 PM.  TEXT:  22828  TO:  PACEPAC.  To Join our Mailing list.

Oklahoma participated in the 2017 Click It or Ticket and both Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilizations in July and August. The impaired driving mobilization efforts were conducted with the Oklahoma ENDUI tagline. That means that PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION efforts to expand Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education in Public Transportation Policy are supported by statistical models that are working. 

Oklahoma took part in three national mobilization efforts during FY 2017: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over impaired driving mobilization in December 2016; Click It or Ticket seat belt mobilization in May; and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over impaired driving mobilization in August/September 2017. Oklahoma did not meet the 2016 target for reducing the number of pedestrian fatalities. In response, Oklahoma initiated a request for 12 FY 2016 Funded Projects.[1]

The OHSO website contains a Mobilization Reporting System which allows agencies to submit participation activity electronically for each mobilization. For several years Oklahoma has employed Law Enforcement/Impaired Driving Liaisons with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to aid in working with local agencies on their seat belt and impaired driving programs and encourage participation in these mobilizations.

Oklahoma did see success when reviewing the significant decreases in  Core Outcomes for the following core measures:

[1] FATALITIES AND SERIOUS INJURIES

[2] UNRESTRAINED FATALITIES AND OPERATOR .08 OR MORE BAC FATALITIES

TAKE A LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS THAT ARE BEING REPORTED BY THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION FY2016 ANNUAL REPORT. Published by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.  Well, Tulsa, Oklahoma is not New York City, but Pedestrians being distracted by texting and other tech device activities is not only affecting public safety in big cities, but in suburban neighborhoods and rural towns as well.  For over 5 months at the intersection of 41st & Harvard, Becco Construction Constractor’s workers and independent contractors have been busy upgrading a road surfacing project that was financed by a 2008 penny sales tax bond.  This project is on schedule and expected to complete in another two weeks according to Becco Construction Contractor’s Company.  PACE TULSA AGS Foundation, wrote an initial op ed story about the Ranch Acres Covenant Community.  For more insight about this part of Tulsa, OK read our historical perspective about Ranch Acres.

Additionally, we feel that since the outcomes of this report are so promising that our 6 month study, An Examination: Intersection Awareness 31st & Harvard to 41st & Yale would mean further validation of these kind of foundation programs.

FATALITIES AND SERIOUS INJURIES

C-1 Number of Fatalities Target: To limit the projected increase in the number of traffic fatalities from 678 in 2013 to 694 in 2016. Oklahoma met its 2015 target to limit an expected increase in fatalities to no more than 712 in 2015, with 643 fatalities reported. While CY2016 results are not yet available, preliminary data to date indicates that fatalities in 2016 may remain fairly consistent with the 2015 results.

C-2 Number of Serious Injuries (State Data) Target: To limit the projected increase in the number of Serious Injuries in MVC from 14,734 in 2013 to 15,791 in 2016. Oklahoma met this target in CY2015, not only limiting but seeing a decrease in serious injuries from 14,732 to 14,266. Preliminary data for CY2016 is not available at this time. However, over the last five years, the number of serious injuries (incapacitating and non-incapacitating) has shown a downward trend, from a high of 16,190 in 2011 to 14,266 in 2015 (Oklahoma data).

NHTSA Core Outcome (C) and Behavior (B) Performance Measures
Company 2014 2015
C-1 Number of Traffic Fatalities (FARS) in Oklahoma 669 643
C-2 Number of Serious Injuries (State Data) 14732 14266

 *The statistics are not reported yet for 2017.  As soon as they are I will post them.

NHTSA Core Outcome (C) and Behavior (B) Performance Measures
Company 2014 2015
C-3 Fatality Rates for Vehicle Miles Traveled (FARS) Target C-3: To limit the projected increase in the Fatalities per 100 Million VMT rate from 1.41 in 2013 to 1.45 in 2016.

Target C-3(a):To maintain the projected Urban Fatalities per 100 Million VMT rate from 0.84 in 2013 to 0.84 in 2016.

Target C-3(b): To limit the projected increase in the Rural Fatalities per 100 Million VMT rate from 2.18 in 2013 to 2.21 in 2016.

1.41 1.35
C-4 Unrestrained Fatalities, all seating positions (FARS) Target in Oklahoma 258 218

As previously addressed in this report (see Performance Measure C-10 on page 10), Oklahoma did not meet the 2015 target for reducing the number of pedestrian fatalities.

In response, Oklahoma initiated a request for 12 – FY 2016 Funded Project Expenditures 13 NHTSA Countermeasures That Work, A Highway Safety Countermeasure Guide for State Highway Safety Offices, Seventh Edition, 2013.

About An Aware Pedestrian

 “An Aware Pedestrian” by Terence Morris, author and founder of PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION.  October 19, 2017, 2017.  12:34 PM.

Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education is a” global think-tank” intersecting awareness of transportation policy in the United States. – Terence Morris, author and founder of PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION.

An Aware Pedestrian, is someone who identifies with being part of an emerging crosswalk education health conscious community, and whose actions contribute to developing this community’s constitution; government and economy through participation and practice.

To test the validity of this definition of “An Aware Pedestrian” one must examine its’ basic preconception’s:

This “Global Think-Tank,” is an emerging online world community with which people can identify; and

In “Communal Modularism” their exists a nascent set of values definable by self-constitution; self-governance; and self-economy.

Goal-to-Purpose environments

The “Goal-to-Purpose” environment guides social-uplift and human preservation activities in ways that have always formed, prerequisite obligations, in online communities throughout the world. Shared traits in modularity aid in shape-form polarizations particularly assailant in human identities.  These identity traits help define appropriate economic; political; religious; or social norms for group members in almost all global communities.

Unilateral existentialist homogeneity

Defines how individual peoples’ lives provoke and stimulate thought. Usually “thought –movements” encourage building governance. Acknowledging protocol and rules, leads user sensitive information; financial records; conversation types; acceptable languages; permission levels; role and body designations, which are all programmatic experiences that never get considered by the participant.  Information technology students and professionals design measurement tools and which store this critical information in encrypted databases and files. 

Engagement in think-tanks

When volunteering to become a part of a forum; chat room; organizational; community; or company… how we engage is just as important as practicing “the engagement.”  Acceptance and agreement is usually required. To enter a genomic collection environment demographic determinations made through application interactions; search history; and “habit gauging software applications over a series of clicks; periods in days; weeks; months or year “track” user traits and established “use- profiles” that will accurately allow content and marketing curation. 

One People in “Like Mind”

Establishes and cultivates a community voice with independent preparation and technical support.  To ignite progress within these “media caveat instruments” a host, must creatively affect the direction of the content curation and marketing process. 

Structured Voice-to-forum environments.

Core “belief sets.” An evaluative logic model in classic if-then dialectic briefly defines for the user participant an understandable “speak-thought” format.  Today, certain assurance-level communication relationships exist to provide concise communicable logic.  Enhanced participation, is much more difficult, without knowing the traits of the “user-participant” platform within “click-bank platforms.”  To establish trust within “the global think-tank forum” users expect some type of universal accord.  A “Horn-treatise” if you will.  This symbolic preparation should also be defined in rules for mediation and resolution of questions and content inconsistencies.

The Global Think-Tank Theater Classic “speak and respond” conversation style.

Classic “speak and respond” conversation style, is a” low-level” communication tool, which continues to be useful in “static” or” soft communication structured environments.  People that really don’t want or expect “a whole-lot” of interaction from their participation in online forums, rarely acknowledge or even understand the depth of discovery being harnessed from these oblique representations of Rights of Speech forums.  Therefore, great care must be exercised to protect these individuals from undo privacy intrusions or cybernetic obstructions.  Gross violations of Rights of Speech and privacy Intrusions should always be at the front of any Global Think-Tank design.  People that want 100% immersion in all of the communities they join will become quickly impressed with the speed of user-to-learner transitions in PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION modular theoretical applications. 

PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION and the “power of change.”

PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION evokes the “power of change” in AGS Participants the moment the “user –participant” hyperlinks into our URL website portal:  https://pacetulsa.com.  It is in this moment where “user-participants” begin to imagine a reinforced pedestrian awareness crosswalk education identity. It is also in this moment the interstate transportation in “Voice, Body, Mind and Spirit” interconnecting within our humanity to bridge the ideas that are fostered in Modular- Virtual environments.

PACE TULSA FOUNDATION, improves peoples’ ability to connect technologically; especially, in developing nations.

PEDESTRIANS

Who is a Pedestrian?

A pedestrian is a person traveling on foot, whether walking or running. In some communities, those traveling using tiny wheels such as roller skates, skateboards, and scooters, as well as wheelchair users are also included as pedestrians.

Pedestrian – Wikipedia.

AWARENESS

What is a Pedestrian Sign?

Pedestrian Signs are the most important Traffic Signs on the road today. Protect your Pedestrian Traffic with Pedestrian Crossing Signs from SafetySign.com. Our full selection of Pedestrian Signs range from Pedestrian Crossing Panels to MUTCD compliant Pedestrian Crossing Signs.

What is a Pedestrian Lane?

A pedestrian crossing or crosswalk is a place designated for pedestrians to cross a road. Crosswalks are designed to keep pedestrians together where they can be seen by motorists, and where they can cross most safely across the flow of vehicular traffic.

Pedestrian crossing – Wikipedia.

When can you cross the street?

When crossing a street, pedestrians should stop at the edge of the road and look left, right, and then left again before proceeding. When the roadway is clear, begincrossing while looking over your shoulder for turning vehicles; always check for traffic while crossing and yield to oncoming traffic.

Do I have to stop for Pedestrians at a Crosswalk?

At an uncontrolled intersection (no signals, signs, or marked crosswalks), if apedestrian is standing on the sidewalk or off of the roadway and has not stepped out onto the roadway so as to indicate an intention to cross the street, vehicular traffic is not required to stop.Jan 24, 2009

Do Pedestrians have the right-of-way?

MYTH #1: Pedestrians always have the right-of-way. REALITY: No, not always. Legally, pedestrians have the right-of-way at controlled intersections and in marked crosswalks; but the law also states that “no pedestrian shall unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a marked or unmarked crosswalk.”

Do pedestrians have the right of way at a stop sign?

Also, yield to the vehicle or bicycle that arrives first, or to the vehicle or bicycle on your right if it reaches the intersection at the same time as you. At “T” intersections without “STOP” or “YIELD” signs, yield to traffic and pedestrians on the through road. They have the right-of-way.

Right-of-Way Rules

Do you have to yield to Pedestrians?

In the absence of a crosswalk at an intersection, drivers must stop before reaching the intersection. If there is a crosswalk, drivers must allow a pedestrian who has the proper signal to cross the street. If a motor vehicle has a green light, pedestrians and bicyclists should yield the right of way to that vehicle.

JAYWALKING

Why is jaywalking a crime?

Regarding to Traffic laws, jaywalking and crossing when a pedestrian light is red or to start walking when it is flashing is prohibited from the 1970s, If in an intersection there is no pedestrian light, traffic lights would be considered, so it would be illegalwhen it is red or orange.

Jaywalking – Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaywalking

Why do they call it jaywalking?

Contrary to popular belief, the term jaywalking does not derive from the shape of the letter “J” (referencing the path a jaywalker might travel when crossing a road). Rather, it comes from the fact that “Jay” used to be a generic term for someone who was an idiot, dull, rube, unsophisticated, poor, or simpleton.Jul 9, 2012

Origin of the Term Jaywalking – Today I Found Out

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2012/07/origin-of-the-term-jaywalking/

Do Jaywalkers have the right-of-way?

In fact, jaywalking is generally a legal action, so long as the pedestrian in question does one thing – yields to oncoming traffic. This is because outside of designated crosswalks (whether marked or unmarked), vehicles on the road have the right of way.

CROSSWALKS

What is a  Marked Crosswalk?

A marked crosswalk is any portion of the road outlined by painted markings or a difference texture of concrete or pavers. How are crosswalks used? Drivers must be aware of crosswalks and stop for pedestrians who are within a marked or unmarkedcrosswalk.May 17, 2010

What is an unmarked crosswalk?

In New Jersey, as in most states, all intersections of streets are normally considered to represent crosswalks, even when there are no painted crosswalk lines. At these ‘unmarked crosswalks’, it is legal for pedestrians to cross.

What color are crosswalk lines?

Crosswalks are often marked with white lines. Yellow crosswalk lines may be painted at school crossings. Most often, crosswalks in residential areas are not marked. Some crosswalks have flashing lights to warn you that pedestrians may be crossing.

ROAD MARKINGS

How long are the white lines on the highway?

When asked to guess the length of the lines from memory, most answered 2 feet. The real answer is 10 feet. That’s the federal guideline for every street, highway, and rural road in the United States, where dashed lines separate traffic lanes or indicate where passing is allowed, Shaffer said.

Many underestimate white dashed lines – UPI.com

http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2009/02/03/Many-underestimate…/36181233688383/

What does a solid white line at the side of the road?

For example, on a two-lane road, the solid white line to the right marks the edge of the roadway. The yellow line on the left separates you from oncoming traffic. A double solid yellow line on your left means that it is not legal for you or for oncoming traffic to pass.

Section 3.4 Signs, Signals, and Roadway Markings

http://www.webtrafficschool.com/wts/content/california/s3_4ca_movie.html

What do the yellow lines tell you about the traffic flow?

A solid white line marks the right edge of many roads. The center marking for roads with four lanes consists of TWO SOLID YELLOW LINES. The yellow lines tell you thetraffic on the other side of the lines is moving in the opposite direction. You should never cross the two solid yellow lines to pass.
