Did you know that it’s difficult for many Americans to be physically active in their neighborhoods because their streets lack the sidewalks, bike lanes, and crosswalks needed for safe travel?
To work toward streets that are safe and easy to use for people of all ages and abilities, many towns across the country are pursuing complete streets policies. Whether you are a kid biking to school, an older adult walking to the bus stop, or a parent pushing a stroller, complete streets connect communities and allow people to safely share the road with cars and trucks.
Complete streets, which include proper sidewalks, bike lanes, and crosswalks, could help prevent up to 9 out of 10 crashes that occur alongside roadways- Further, these improvements to our neighborhoods provide increased opportunities for adults and children to be active. Now, who doesn’t want that?
