Mayor Jacobs’ Walk-Ride-Thrive! pedestrian safety program includes Orange County’s first Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Action Plan (PBSAP). The first phase of the PBSAP, currently underway, will:
- Document the County’s extensive pedestrian and bicycle safety efforts to date
- Analyze crash data and crash typing to identify location and behavioral factors that contribute to crashes
- Review the engineering design features that Orange County currently uses or could adopt to decrease crashes on County roadways
- Coordinate with regional partners, including MetroPlan Orlando, Best Foot Forward, Orange County Public Schools, and LYNX.
The first phase of the PBSAP will be completed in March 2018. The next phase of the PBSAP includes public outreach to Orange County residents and organizations to present findings and obtain their input and recommendations on improving bicycle and pedestrian safety in Orange County.
