Creating Safer Streets
In April, the San Mateo County Office of Education hosted four walk audits at schools in Daly City, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay. These walk audits were facilitated by national transportation and public health consultant, Mark Fenton. The walk audits brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to assess walkability, pedestrian access, and bikeability near the schools. The next step will be to elevate these issues with each city and to consider implementing road safety measures for pedestrians and bicyclists.
