In recent years, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has developed a new, expanded statement of policy regarding walking and bicycling. FHWA has taken the position that walking and bicycling are legitimate modes of transportation that have too long been the "forgotten modes," and this should change. The goals that have been set are:

  • reduce the current number of walking and bicycling injuries and fatalities by 10%, and
  • double the percentage of trips made by walking and bicycling.

The Pedestrian Forum is a quarterly newsletter with the objective of informing the Field Offices of pedestrian issues such as research and development, new and revised regulations, programs, innovative projects, successful test and evaluation, etc.
