In the past year, three crosswalks monitored by the Best Foot Forward program in Osceola County have seen significant increases in driver yield rates after the installation of rectangular rapid-flashing beacons (RRFBs).
MetroPlan Orlando released the results of its regional transportation study. The study showed that there is strong support for building pedestrian-friendly and bicycle-friendly communities but still a great sense that these forms of transportation are unsafe in the region. Other findings include:
- Most say transportation system about “average.”
- Almost 1 in 5 say they exceed speed limits regularly.
- Majority support making communities friendly to cyclists, pedestrians.
The 2021 Regional Transportation Survey Report shares opinions from more than 3,000 Central Floridians on a variety of topics – including transportation habits and challenges, new technology, and equity for all users.
