New Pedestrian Safety Toolkit Available

The Vermont Agency of Transportation and Department of Health have published a free downloadable Pedestrian Safety and Vulnerable Road Users Toolkit for Vermonters everywhere, providing guidance for improving the ability of people to walk in their communities. It shows how improving walkability is valuable, from health to social equity reasons, and gives suggestions for improving pedestrian safety at school drop-off zones; at night; at road crossings and more. Download the Toolkit at https://safestreets.vermont.gov/sites/safestreets/files/documents/Pedestrian%20Safety%20and%20Vulnerable%20Road%20User%20Toolkit.pdf
