Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Focus States and Cities

Since 2004, FHWA's Safety Office has been working to aggressively reduce pedestrian deaths by focusing extra resources on the cities and states with the highest pedestrian fatalities and/or fatality rates. The states and cities were revised in 2015 to include bikes and to what you currently see in this map. For more information on how the states and cities were selected visit the Office of Safety's Focused Approach Website

Part of this effort has included development of How to Develop a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan, which helps state and local officials know where to begin to address pedestrian safety issues. In addition, we have been offering free technical assistance and courses to each of the states and cities, and free bi-monthly webinars on subjects of interest. The document and webinars are available for free to other states as well. The training is available at a cost to non-focus states and cities through the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (see info link below), and is also available through the National Highway Institute. An Evaluation of the Focused Approach to Pedestrian Safety was also recently completed and is also posted here to document progress to date under this program. Check back once in a while to see the latest webinar information and to view past recorded webinars.
