Everyone Deserves Safe Streets

Everyone Deserves Safe Streets

Strategic thoughts on Safe Streets for All projects

Between 2019 and 2022, the number of pedestrian fatalities increased nearly 20%, as reported in detail by Governors Highway Safety Association in their new Pedestrian Traffic Fatalities report. There were over 7,500 pedestrian fatalities in 2022, which is the highest number since 1981. Unless we take action to improve and implement new safety infrastructure, this devastating trend is projected to continue. This is one of the many reasons that the Safe Streets for All grant program is a big deal.

In collaboration with PedalLove we have updated our white paper about the Safe Streets for All Grant program. Developing a meaningful and robust safety plan is the first step in this program and, based on our experience, we suggest how to go about this process.

DCR suggests following this roadmap to create an impactful safety plan.

If you’ve already won a Safe Streets and Roads for All grant or other active transportation funding, we recommend reading the full paper below.

Please reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
