Safer Streets

Safer Streets

Safer streets are those that mitigate human mistakes, are self-enforcing by design, encourage safe travel behaviors, protect the most vulnerable users, and reduce potential for high-severity crashes. 

Key Strategies

  • Integrate safety improvements into all capital projects.
  • Advance responsive safety treatments to address crash patterns.
  • Scale up the proactive implementation of proven safety measures before crashes occur.
  • Improve dedicated facilities for people walking, rolling, biking and taking transit.
