Resource: USDOT Pedestrian Safety Action Plan


USDOT Pedestrian Plan 

On the heels of the nation’s first Pedestrian Safety Month, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) released its first Pedestrian Safety Action Plan that identifies near and long-term actions, across all agency modes, to improve the safety of people on foot. The plan takes a comprehensive approach that encompasses improvements to roadways and the surrounding environment, increased education on the shared responsibility of pedestrians and motorists, and  enforcement and adjudication of pedestrian safety laws. Actions that fall under the safe system approach, which promotes a more forgiving transportation system that takes human error and vulnerability into account, are also included in the plan.
