Join the Best Foot Forward movement. Its success depends on every resident, neighborhood group and community coming together to work toward one common purpose— people before cars.
That’s why Best Foot Forward seeks your ideas to make walking a “normal” activity by identifying problematic areas and hammering solutions that match realities in your neighborhood. We can’t do it alone. Best Foot Forward relies on the support of community partners and neighbors across the region to achieve progress.
Here are just a few ways you can get involved and help foster an understanding that it is within our power to make every street safe, walkable and friendly.
The Best Foot Forward Community Outreach team is always looking for new opportunities to spread the message of pedestrian safety and Florida’s driver yield law. Invite Best Foot Forward to your community event, or ask us to give a presentation to your local neighborhood or homeowners’ group. Best Foot Forward also offers speakers and safety presentations for schools, both public and private.
Contact Best Foot Forward today to set up your event.
Is there a particularly dangerous crosswalk near you? Maybe it’s right outside your neighborhood. Maybe you drive past it on your way to work. Maybe you have to use it in order to go to the grocery store or the gas station.
Best Foot Forward is always interested in taking suggestions for future crosswalks to monitor. Contact us and tell us the exact location, and what makes it so dangerous.
No one knows the streets like the people who live in the community.
Are you passionate about pedestrian safety? Do you love talking to people and helping them? If so, you should consider becoming part of the Best Foot Forward Community Outreach team. You’ll be the program’s representative at community events and give presentations on the driver yield law to neighborhood and homeowners’ groups. Contact us if you’re interested in learning more about a possible position.
Your donation of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, or $500, can go a long way. In the Best Foot Forward program, we know how to stretch a buck. But we’ve got a lot of real estate to cover. There are 21 incorporated cities and towns in the greater Orlando metro, an equal number of engineering and police departments, three school districts, three sheriff’s offices, and countless neighborhood associations and faith-based groups. It’s a big job, and we are grateful for every dollar you can spare to help us save lives and create a healthier, more civil community.
Looking to bring a program like Best Foot Forward to your community?
