Report - Public Policies for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety and Mobility
The University of North Carolina’s Highway Safety Research Center released a report that provides examples of potentially effective policies and implementing programs designed to enhance pedestrian and bicyclist safety and mobility. It is based on a recommendation resulting from a 2009 international scan that explored approaches used in Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety and mobility. The report was released in cooperation with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), with the sponsorship of U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and its International Technology Scanning Program.
