Greater Washington Network Leads USDOT ‘Mayors Challenge’ Letter to Prince George’s County Executive Baker

Today, the Safe Routes to School National Partnership Greater Washington Regional Network led a letter to Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III, encouraging him to sign up for the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Safer People, Safer Streets challenge. The challenge is aimed at mayors and local elected leaders across the nation, and encourages jurisdictions to spend one year undertaking activities that will improve safety for all road users.

The letter was joined by the Washington Area Bicycle Association, the Institute for Public Health Innovation, the Coalition for Smarter Growth, Prince George’s Advocates for Community-based Transit, and CASA de Maryland. Each of these groups work to advance health and safety in Prince George’s County. Check out the USDOT website to learn more about the Safer People, Safer Streets challenge.
