Long Island Streets is excited to serve on the Steering Committee for the first Walk-Bike Nassau Symposium.

The Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) in partnership with the Nassau County Traffic Safety Board and Long Island Health Collaborative presents Walk-Bike Nassau. 

Walk-Bike Nassau's mission is to raise awareness, provide education and empower residents and community leaders in Nassau County to increase health and safety while walking and biking.

This is the first county-wide health and safety event focused on pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities. Walk-Bike Nassau will bring together health professionals, educators, law enforcement, community leaders, church groups, traffic safety professionals, non-profits and advocates to engage with the public for this free event. #WalkBikeNassau

 

Why Walk-Bike Nassau?

In 2017, Nassau County had the third highest number of pedestrian fatalities in New York State after New York City and Suffolk County. The Nassau County Traffic Safety Board, which is charged with reducing the number of injuries and fatalities resulting from motor vehicle crashes, is undertaking a campaign to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety in Nassau County. Walk-Bike Nassau will be the first event of its kind to address pedestrian fatality rates while increasing health and safety.
