Walking The Road to Zero

Traffic fatalities in Richmond have risen steadily over the last four years, painting an all too familiar picture of communities across the United States in a particular position to protect more vulnerable populations of pedestrians – amid a backdrop of complex social issues.

America Walks, in partnership with UNC Highway Safety Research Center, has been working on its Safer Systems Program since the early fall. You could call it the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all approach. On the blog this month, in Walking the Road to Zero, we featured Sarah Shaughnessy, Community Health Planner for the Richmond City Health Department and a member of the 2018 Road to Zero cohort. Read along as she details the safe systems solutions that will activate collaborative traffic safety changes in these communities, and operate as a potential model for addressing inequities in your walkable community work too.
