Get Involved with Street Safety Advocacy
Bicycling and walking are important for individual, community and environmental health. Both have the potential to improve public health by reducing traffic congestion, contributing to improved air quality, and creating a greater sense of community. Trails, bikeway networks, and inviting streets and sidewalks can also provide economic benefits.
Increasing people's physical activity can have beneficial effects on public health in general, especially in the case of chronic diseases, including obesity, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
This page is dedicated to providing information about safe streets advocacy at the local, regional, and state level in California. Safe streets advocacy and community-led solutions to reduce traffic-related injuries might look different depending on the context and scale, supporting organizations dedicated to improving safe walkability and bikeability ensures a diverse number of voices are a part of the planning process.
