Traffic Safety in the City: Centering Equity and Access (Los Angeles County)

Traffic Safety Peer Exchange Event


Do urban areas in your community lack safe spaces for community connections? Are there few opportunities to safely walk and bike? Are there safe places to access transit? Are any areas cut off by freeways or other obstructions? Join SCAG Go Human to learn how practitioners, city staff and elected officials can help Los Angeles County to improve traffic safety and prevent traffic violence. This regionally specific session is focused on traffic safety issues facing urban communities. Topics include pedestrian and bicycle safety, speeding, intersection conflicts, and implementing proven safety countermeasures.
