About Best Foot Forward

The Best Foot Forward pedestrian safety initiative was launched in June 2012 to reduce pedestrian deaths and injuries in Metro Orlando by getting drivers to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and getting pedestrians to be more careful crossing the street. More than a campaign, this “Triple-E” behavioral change process seeks to create lasting social good through the consistent and persistent application of low-cost engineering, community education, and high-visibility enforcement.

The Best Foot Forward for Pedestrian Safety coalition includes: MetroPlan Orlando, Orange County Government and Sheriff’s Office, Osceola County Government and Sheriff’s Office, the City of Kissimmee Government and Police Department, the City of Orlando and Police Department, Florida Department of Health, School District of Osceola County, Orange County Public Schools, Orlando Health, Lynx, Winter Park Health Foundation, the Florida Department of Transportation, Orange Cycle, the University of Miami’s WalkSafe and Bike/Walk Central Florida.

Bike/Walk Central Florida manages and administers the Best Foot Forward program on behalf of coalition partners. Amanda Day, Project Director, Best Foot Forward, at 407-636-5606 or via email at amanda@bikewalkcentralflorida.org.
