Report: The Best Complete Streets Policies
October 17, 2017

From 2005-2014, more than 46,000 pedestrians were struck by vehicles. Communities committed to making their streets safe and convenient for everyone can find model policies in this latest report by the National Complete Streets Coalition and Smart Growth America. Complete Streets policies seek to reduce pedestrian and cycling fatalities, which in turn supports older residents to age in place, and encourages healthy physical activity among community members of all ages. More than 1200 communities across the country, including 135 NJ communities, have adopted Complete Streets policies.
