State of Vermont puts campaign on road safety into action

Vermonters see walking and biking as healthy ways to get around, and some people rely on them as their only form of transportation. Yet nearly 10 percent of adults said they felt their community was not at all safe, or only slightly safe, for walking.

To help bend the curve, the Health Department and Agency of Transportation launched Watch for Me-VT, a public outreach campaign designed to raise awareness of road safety issues, and to promote multidisciplinary partnerships that assist communities in developing policies and infrastructure changes that support road user safety.
