Pedestrian Safety Action Plan

Promoting Pedestrian Safety in Wilson

The UNC Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC) is partnering with the City of Wilson to promote pedestrian safety and further its efforts in becoming a model community for walkability for places of similar size throughout North Carolina. The two other jurisdictions in the State selected to participate in this four-year project are Charlotte and Durham. The project began in 2009 and is scheduled for completion in 2013. The project aims to reduce pedestrian crashes and their negative impacts on the community through a sustained and comprehensive program involving roadway improvements, law enforcement efforts, and broad outreach regarding pedestrian safety issues.
