Street Story: Self-Reporting Transportation Safety Issues

Low-income groups, some racial/ethnic groups, people with disabilities, seniors and rural communities are at higher risk of being injured or killed while walking and biking. Information on the safety needs of these communities is limited. 

To help increase safety and to improve the street environment for road users, SafeTREC is developing Street Story, an online platform that allows residents to report transportation safety issues in their communities.
