People of all ages and abilities want to travel throughout their town safely and conveniently. Whether they walk, bike, ride a bus or train, or drive a car, people need bike lanes, sidewalks, and roads to accommodate their preferred mode of travel. However, many cities don’t provide safe ways for walkers and bikers to share the road with cars and trucks.

In order to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all, community leaders and decision makers must work to adopt “complete streets” policies. Complete streets policies would provide more options for getting around in your neighborhood, providing more opportunities to include physical activity in your daily routines. Instead of focusing solely on motor vehicles, your city or neighborhood would be designed and built for the safety of all travelers. This includes those who walk, bike, use a wheelchair, use public transportation, and drive.

We know that people who live in neighborhoods with sidewalks and bike lanes are more active, have cleaner air, and experience fewer crashes and collisions. In order to create more neighborhoods like this, we need streets built to share™.
