Pedestrians & Bicycles
- One in 10 traffic deaths in Washington is a pedestrian death.
- Pedestrian deaths are the third leading cause of death for Washington children.
We support a wide variety of projects to encourage safer walking and biking and increase driver awareness.
Educate drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists
We provide money and materials for a wide variety of education projects carried out through local Traffic Safety Task Forces.
Give pedestrians and cyclists a voice in government
We coordinate the Cooper Jones Advisory Committee, a citizen group that reviews grant proposals for pedestrian and bicycle traffic safety projects.
Increase crosswalk enforcement
We provide grants to law enforcement agencies for training and for patrols that target drivers who fail to yield for pedestrians in crosswalks.
