A grassroots initiative is providing innovative pedestrian safety education to the citizens of the Tampa Bay area. Pedestrian safety is an issue that affects everyone. We are all pedestrians at some point during our day, whether walking through a parking lot after shopping, walking from home or work to a vehicle, walking for exercise or simply walking to enjoy a beautiful Florida day, we are a pedestrians.
Now is the time to learn pedestrian skills that will help increase the safety of the Tampa Bay community. Join our efforts and request a free Pedestrian Safety Presentation for your business, association, church, school or group. The WalkWise campaign provides an informative and conversational free 15-30 minute presentation with time for discussion to anyone living or working in Pasco, Hillsborough or Pinellas County, as well as Orange County. Each attendee will receive a WalkWise Tampa Bay reflective bag and other safety items after the presentation. After taking the WalkWise pledge, each individual is named to our growing list of WalkWise Ambassadors. WalkWise Tampa Bay is managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at USF and funded by the FDOT District 7.
