Dangerous by Design

Last week, Smart Growth America released the 2022 edition of Dangerous By Design, reporting on pedestrian safety nationwide. This year, the Orlando MSA dropped from most dangerous to top ten most dangerous due to a change in methodology. Nevertheless, pedestrian deaths are historically higher than ever. Addressing this, I am proud Orange County is funding improvements to pedestrian safety by constructing designated pedestrian pathways such as the Econ Greenway Trail and Shingle Creek Trail. It should be safe, feasible, and enjoyable for all modes of transportation to move around our County.
