How do we make Long Island safer for pedestrians and foot traffic?
Through the work of dedicated Long Island community organizations, Walk Safe Long Island aims to raise awareness, provide education, and empower residents and leaders in our region to increase health and safety while walking.
A collaborative of health and transportation safety educators from across Nassau and Suffolk Counties aims to improve pedestrian safety and health outcomes through law-based education.
Walk Safe Long Island brings together health professionals, educators, law enforcement, community leaders, church groups, traffic safety professionals, non-profits, advocates, and more to engage with the public about what we're doing, and what they can do to help.
