Pedestrians and bicyclists are the most vulnerable users of our roadways. All of us, no matter how we choose to travel, share in a responsibility to keep pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists safe.
Between 2010 and 2014, Charlotte averaged 329 pedestrian crashes per year, with 65 of the crashes during that time period resulting in a pedestrian's death. These incidents can be avoided! The Charlotte Department of Transportation is working hard to providing a safe, accessible environment for all pedestrians. Here are some things you can do to help.
