Over 4,000 people in the United States die each year from pedestrian-related injuries. This one-hour webinar highlights resources created by national organizations to advance pedestrian injury prevention and safety. Representatives from America Walks, the National Complete Streets Coalition, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, and the Safe States Alliance share recently developed tools, resources, and initiatives related to pedestrian injury prevention.
