Since 2000, more than 650 children aged 18 and under have been involved in a pedestrian crash in Wake County. The Wake County Child Pedestrian Safety Action Network aims to raise awareness of the child pedestrian injury concerns in the County, to share and plan activities, and to build greater capacity to prevent pedestrian crashes and injuries. The network includes a range of local, county, and state-level stakeholders who have committed to meet regularly in 2013. Participants represent various disciplines: 1) Decision-makers and elected officials, 2) Law enforcement officials, 3) Planners and engineers, 4) School community representatives, 5) Public health and safety professionals, and 6) Community advocacy organizations. The network receives support from The UNC Highway Safety Research Center, with its partner Toole Design Group, through a grant from the John Rex Endowment.
