The Maricopa Association of Governments Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Education and Enforcement program provides regional resources for improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety in the region. Phase I, development of the program, is part of the MAG Strategic Transportation Safety Plan update and is currently under development. Program development was guided by the “Street Smart NJ” program, which served as a guideline and source of inspiration. A task force was created to guide development of the program and its materials, called See Me AZ, with a key goal of changing the behaviors of drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists to ensure a safer future for all users. It is expected that the materials produced from this program can be used by local police departments in their efforts.
- Change people’s behavior to reduce roadway incidents.
- Inform people about their roles and responsibilities for safely sharing the road.
- Increase enforcement of laws and people’s awareness of that effort.
