Equity

In Montgomery County, severe and fatal crashes are not distributed evenly across our neighborhoods. Communities with higher rates of poverty, persons of color, and younger residents have higher collision rates compared to the rest of the County.

Because of these disparities, Montgomery County created a task force to recommend changes to policies and practices for engineering, education, and enforcement in order to close the gap and eventually eliminate traffic fatalities from our roadways. Below are links to the meeting materials and summaries.
