WSDOT Safer People - Safer Streets Action Plan

WSDOT is working with USDOT to reduce the growing number of pedestrian and bicyclist injuries and fatalities through a comprehensive approach that addresses infrastructure safety, education, vehicle safety and data collection called Safer People – Safer Streets.  To kick off this initiative in Washington, WSDOT held a statewide meeting in November 2014 attended by over 70 engineers from across the state to formalize WSDOT's Safer People - Safer Streets Action Plan.
