The Secretary’s Action Plan on Bike and Pedestrian Safety will promote design improvements to ensure safe and efficient routes for pedestrians and bicycles, promote behavioral safety, and provide education to help individuals make safer travel choices. The initiative will also encourage vehicle safety by drawing on current crash avoidance technologies to alert motorists to the presence of bicyclists and pedestrians.  Please see attached for a copy of the action plan.  Byway communities interested in this effort are encouraged to work with your State department of transportation and/or metropolitan planning organization.  For more information, please visit pedbikeinfo.org, saferoutesinfo.org, and fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bicycle_pedestrian.  Please note that there is no additional funding associated with this initiative.
