National Perspectives on Walking and Pedestrian Safety: Where We Are and How We Move Forward

Smart Growth Network "Walktober Walkinar" Series

[Virtual]

Participants of this live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits

The 2022 Walktober Walkinar series kicks off with a look at national efforts on pedestrian safety, where things stand and how the country is moving forward . 

The series begins with the Honorable Thomas B. Chapman, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) who will highlight the NTSB most wanted highway safety improvement items. Specifically, he will highlight the importance of the safe system approach to traffic safety in protecting vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and bicyclists.

Next, Mike McGinn of America Walks will outline the current state of the walkability movement and the opportunities presented by new infrastructure funding available at the federal level., as well as how advocates can work with state and local officials to lay the groundwork for new investments in walkability and accessibility.

Finally, surveys by AARP show that brisk walking, walking for exercise, and walking for leisure are among the most common activities engaged in by adults in all age groups.  Laura Mehegan of AARP will share data and trends from these surveys, which show that one in five adults say they are engaging in more vigorous walking than they were before the pandemic.
