- raise public awareness about child pedestrian safety;
- change attitudes and behaviors of both pedestrians and drivers;
- create safer environments for walking;
- develop and conduct safe-walking programs;
- address gaps in current knowledge about pedestrian safety;
- collect data to measure how much children walk and identify factors put them at risk for injury while walking.
