Overview

As walking and biking have become increasingly popular forms of transportation and recreation throughout the state, Kansas has experienced an increase in crashes involving non-motorists which result in a fatality or serious injury. While motor vehicle occupants benefit from built-in safety enhancements and advancements in roadway safety and technology, non-motorists remain extremely vulnerable to death or injury in a collision with a motor vehicle. Protecting non-motorists by reducing the frequency and severity of crashes involving pedestrians and bicyclists is a primary safety emphasis of the Kansas Strategic Highway Safety Plan.
