Safety is a vital concern for every travel mode but is perhaps most serious for pedestrians and bicyclists, as they represent the most vulnerable users. Perceptions of safety and access to safe, low-stress facilities shape individual travel behavior. Without proper use, individuals are less inclined to walk or bike to get to destinations.
MDOT and partners throughout the state share the goal to expand the active transportation network and institute safety countermeasures to allow for the safe use of active transportation infrastructure.
