For this installment of Stories from the Field, we're excited to share our conversation with Dorothy "Dot" Wong, Altadena Town Councilmember and member of the Traffic Safety and Mobility Committee. In this safety story, she shares about her efforts as an experienced pedestrian and bicycle safety educator and lead instructor working with local advocacy organizations to create safer and more livable spaces for walking, biking and rolling. Wong also discusses the key elements for successful active transportation projects like developing and maintaining partnerships within the community, and creating events and activities like bike parks that are inclusive and invite people, especially children, to move in different ways.
This story is part of the Stories from the Field Series on UC Berkeley SafeTREC's California Active Transportation Safety Information Pages (CATSIP) website. It's where you'll find stories of successes, lessons learned, best practices and tools for promoting safe active transportation throughout the state of California.
