As an ongoing commitment to the safety of Montgomery County residents, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation administers a variety of pedestrian and traffic programs aimed at educating students, bikers, and residents of Montgomery County on the importance of transportation safety and awareness.


Improving Safety in Montgomery County

By combining the three E's of pedestrian safety - Engineering, Education, and Enforcement - MCDOT is implementing engineering improvements on county roadways, public education campaigns, and targeted enforcement of traffic laws. These efforts have shown signs of reducing the frequency and severity of pedestrian collisions.

How We Work with VisionZero

The program focuses on introducing a safe systems approach to education and training, improving the engineering of infrastructure for high-injury area, maintenance of quick-action traffic incident response, traffic safety enforcement, and state policy safety plans.
