What Are Complete Streets?

Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.

Why Complete Streets for Rockland County?

  • At-risk Rockland County residents (i.e., youth, the aging, racial/ethnic minorities, and low-income individuals) are victim to a disproportionate number of pedestrian fatalities.
  • Only about 7% of all reportable crashes involved pedestrians, cyclists, and other users of non-motorized transportation, but they account for 25% of all fatal crashes.    
  • For NYS crash data and summary reports visit Institute for Traffic Safety Management & Research
