"Perils For Pedestrians" began in 1996 as a monthly series on over 100 public access cable television stations in the United States. Each episode consists of several interviews with advocates, planners, public officials, and others with an interest in pedestrians. Interviews have taken place in all 50 United States and in 16 other countries. Since 2005, the series has also been available on video-sharing websites on the Internet, making the archive of 200 past episodes available everywhere to anyone with Internet access.

The idea behind the series is to raise public awareness of issues affecting pedestrians, which will make the job of pedestrian advocates easier. In addition, people already involved in pedestrian issues can learn from the program. And people who have appeared on the program have made new contacts as a result of being seen on television.

A website, www.pedestrians.org, expands on some of the issues discussed on the television program, and also provides a convenient way to look through an index of past episodes.
