“Health and Transportation Partners: Working to Improve Pedestrian Safety in Oregon”
Partners from the Oregon Public Health Division, Safe Kids Oregon, Oregon Department of Transportation, Commute Options, and Washington County are working to create and enhance safe and walkable neighborhoods in Oregon. Aside from the devastating toll of injuries, perceived lack of safety is the #1 barrier to getting our population to use more active transportation modes, which has many other health benefits.
This webinar covers the scope of the problem of pedestrian injuries and fatalities in Oregon, including population disparities; share a variety of ways to improve pedestrian safety in neighborhoods, towns or cities; and explore best practices being used to increase the numbers of individuals using active transportation, and how to keep all road users safer. These evidence-based methods need not be high cost, and can encompass education, enforcement and some simple engineering fixes.
