Pedestrian Safety Committee

Drive with CareThe Pedestrian Safety Committee was formed in 2013 to call attention to the increasing number of pedestrian and bicyclist accidents involving motor vehicles and to develop strategies to reduce those numbers. The committee comprises representatives from the Montclair Safe Routes to School and Health and Wellness Partnership, Montclair Township Police and Engineering Departments, Partners for Health Foundation, Bike&Walk Montclair, Essex County Community Traffic Safety Program and individuals from the community at-large.

The "Drive with Care in Montclair" campaign is a current committee initiative, funded primarily by the Partners for Health Foundation, which is designed to encourage safe driving behaviors through a variety of media including banners, flyers and a forum on Traffic Safety held in April 2014 and televised on TV34.
