MCDOT Supports Street Smart Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Awareness on Georgia Avenue at Fenwick Lane

County Executive Ike Leggett joined other regional leaders and members of law enforcement to kick off the Council of Government's regional Street Smart pedestrian and bicyclist safety education and enforcement campaign. Due to strong Montgomery County commitment to improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety, fatalities and serious collisions have dropped significantly in the county over the past several years. The work continues to make our roadways as safe as possible.
