Traffic injuries are the leading cause of death ages 15-29…but it doesn’t have to be the case in Asbury Park. APCSC advocates for streets that provide safe access for everyone, especially the most vulnerable.

“Every person has the right to walk. Choosing to move on foot—to work, school, or the market—should be safe and easy for urban residents.

In many cities, simply getting anywhere by foot has become a dangerous: thousands of pedestrians are killed on the world’s roads each week.”
