Leggett Launches Pedestrian Safety Promotion Teams Along Piney Branch Road Corridor; Area Has Highest Number of Pedestrian Collisions in County
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett today announced the launch of pedestrian safety promotion teams that will intercept pedestrians who are engaged in risky behaviors and provide them with information about safe walking practices. This effort along Piney Branch Road between Flower Avenue and the Prince Georges County line is part of the County’s overall strategy to make pedestrian safety improvements where the most pedestrian collisions in the County occur. The education initiative also includes ads at local movie theaters and on Ride On buses and bus shelters.
