Reachable Roads - Vulnerable Road Users

Every single road user must be aware of the dangers present for vulnerable road users when sharing the road. In general, all road users are vulnerable to the dangers presented by incomplete streets and spaces that are not designed to incorporate all methods of transportation. However, in terms of road safety, vulnerable road users are groups of people who experience a higher burden of injury on roads that are predominantly utilized by cars and other motor vehicles. This includes pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, novice drivers, youth, and older adults. Those who utilize each method of transportation must take action to make the road safer for themselves and others, ensuring the promotion of safe shared streets.
