Purpose of Pedestrian and School “Safe Routes” Audits

Generate concern about school and community pedestrian safety and walkability issues

Channel concern into commitment

Structure commitment into a realistic plan action

Recognition that “safety” impacts our health, our environment, and local business

To improve “Our Quality of Life”

Help transform problem awareness into a commitment to solutions…
