September is 'Pedestrian Safety Month'
Everyone has different preferences when it comes to transportation, but at one time or another everyone is a pedestrian. Fortunately, there was a 1.7% decrease in the number of pedestrians killed in traffic crashes in 2017, totaling 5,977 deaths.

Whether you’re a concerned resident, a parent or a caregiver, you want to do everything you can to make sure you, your loved ones and your neighbors can enjoy walking safely in your community. Check out the resources here for safety tips for pedestrians and drivers alike.
The San Mateo County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (SMCBPAC) has a vacancy! Applications are being accepted until September 6, 2019 .

The SMCBPAC reviews policies, programs and priorities in unincorporated areas of the county to improve walking and bicycling.
