The Pedestrian Safety Program mission is to reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities and to facilitate walking to improve health and fitness.
The Oregon Transportation Safety Division's Pedestrian Safety Program consists of 1/3 staff person’s time and a variable federally supported budget of approximately $135,000 annually.
Program tools are education, enforcement, public information and collaboration with engineering & design.
Program success is heavily dependent on extensive collegial relationships within the department and solid partnerships with other governmental agencies, citizens, advocacy groups, non-profits, health care organizations, media, engineering and research specialists.
