Safer People, Safer Streets

Mayor's challenge logo

As part of the Mayor's Challenge for Safer People, Safer Streets, in February 2015, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced a nationwide initiative to help reduce pedestrian and bicycle fatalities. Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez was among the first in the nation to announce participation in the Challenge.

In March 2015, the Mayor sent a contingent, led by Deputy Mayor Alina Hudak, to the USDOT Mayor's Challenge for Safer People, Safer Streets Summit to learn best practices.
