Phoenix Awarded Funding to Support Roadway Safety Education
The Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety recently awarded $140,000 to the Phoenix Street Transportation Department to support educational outreach efforts connected to the city’s comprehensive Vision Zero Road Safety Action Plan.
The Plan, which was unanimously approved by City Council in September 2022, outlines a series of strategies and performance measures linked to meeting the 2050 goal of zero traffic fatalities in Phoenix.
This grant funding will be used to enhance pedestrian and bicycle safety initiatives, as well as grow the department’s “Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet” multi-media community education campaign.
Money provided through the grant will also support the purchase of bicycle helmets for students that participate in the city’s annual bike-to-school events, and LED stop sign paddles for crossing guards stationed at high-traffic school zone locations citywide.
