Key Messages For Neighbors

Keep sidewalks clear, Peoria, AZ.

A walking route free of obstructions for students going to Laguna Elementary School in Tucson, AZ.

Messages to neighbors depend on local conditions. If there are environmental barriers to safe walking routes, often the neighbors can help.

Messages for neighbors include:

  1. Keep sidewalks clear so they are passable by pedestrians. Sometimes motor vehicles, garbage cans, snow and other materials force pedestrians off of walkways and into traffic.
  2. Prune plants and shrubs to enhance visibility. This will help pedestrians, cyclists and drivers see one another, particularly at street crossings.
  3. Keep unleashed pets off the route. A loose animal can be intimidating and deter walking or bicycling, regardless of the friendliness of the animal.
