If you are interested in improving pedestrian and cyclists’ safety on Arlington’s streets just let us know and we can put you on our mailing list. Arlington Families for Safe Streets (Arl FSS) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. We do not ask anyone for dues, only moral support or volunteer time from our “members”.
We have monthly meetings and publish the meeting’s notes so people can be informed about the different pedestrian safety educational programs we do throughout the year as well as about the advocacy work we do with County and State Legislative Policymakers to improve traffic laws and/or improve street engineering changes to slow drivers down and reduce the risk of pedestrian fatalities. Speed kills and too many of us are driving too fast these days. Even though traffic volume is down in this COVID-19 world, pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries are up in 2020.
To learn more about Arl FSS please visit our website at https://arl.novasafestreets.org and signup for our email list at the top of the page. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our pedestrian safety advocacy organization… because we are all pedestrians. Our next meetings are on Tuesday, January 12 at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. To get the link just signup for our mailing list or email us at: [email protected].
