Education and enforcement in focus state and city pedestrian safety
This grant is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The project focused on developing educational and enforcement programs to improve pedestrian safety in Detroit. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Detroit is one of the top five cities in the United States with the highest number of pedestrian fatalities per year. Educational and enforcement programs will be implemented and evaluated at select locations within the City of Detroit. The overall project will provide a transferable pedestrian safety model that can be implemented in other cities throughout the United States.
