Summary Report: DOT Pedestrian and Bicyclist Road Safety Assessments

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 - 20:45

Beginning in the fall of 2014, the United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) field offices began organizing pedestrian and bicycle safety assessments, on-the-ground examinations of transportation facilities conducted by a multidisciplinary, multi-agency team. By June of 2015, field offices from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) had hosted or participated in 52 assessments, one in every State, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. More than 1,500 people, including elected officials, field office leaders, and representatives from local, regional, State, Federal, and non-governmental agencies took part, helping advance Secretary Foxx’s Safer People, Safer Streets Initiative for pedestrian and bicycle safety. This report summarizes results from this effort; all photographs in this report come from the assessments.  The full report is available at
