A Resident’s Guide for Creating Safer Communities for Walking and Biking

Jan 1, 2015

This guide provides examples from other communities working to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety. It includes ideas and resources to help residents learn about issues that affect walking and bicycling conditions, find ways to address or prevent these problems, and promote safety for all road users. The Resource Sheets at the end of the guide contain checklists, tip sheets, worksheets, and sample materials — these materials can be adapted to meet the needs of your community, or distributed to others working to improve pedestrian and/or bicycle safety. The guide provides an introduction to common safety issues and includes references to other resources and materials for those interested in more in-depth information. Keep in mind that pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements often happen in stages. Even minor changes take time and may require effort from various individuals or agencies. This guide is a starting point and will help you be more efficient and effective, but patience and follow-through are crucial to your success.
