Taking Action on Pedestrian Safety

The New York State Departments of Transportation and Health teamed up with the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee on a first-of-its-kind pedestrian safety campaign in New York State. It provided more than $110 million for enhancing pedestrian safety across Upstate New York and Long Island through the Three Es: Engineering, Enforcement and Education. The State continues to invest in the critical Three Es of pedestrian safety.
