Safe Streets

Hey PAL! We’re building a community-driven movement to make Arlington County’s streets safer for all users. We need your help encouraging pedestrians, bikes and vehicles to share the streets and celebrate Arlington’s active transportation culture.

Being a PAL means being:

  • Predictable – travel in a predictable way; don’t make sudden unexpected moves
  • Alert – pay attention to your surroundings and to others
  • Lawful – obey traffic laws, whether in a car, on a bike or on foot
