Culture Shift & Marketing

Culture Shift & Marketing

  • ISSUE:  While walking and biking for everyday transportation are regular activities for a substantial number of Addison County residents and visitors, there does not yet exist consensus across the County that walking and biking are legitimate uses of public roads.
  • GOALTo build community acceptance of and respect for everyday walking and biking.  The Council is working to prompt a culture shift among Addison County residents towards mutual respect and trust among all users of Addison County’s roads; acceptance of walking and biking as normal, everyday activities; and a fundamental concern for safety, particularly with regard to road users who are disproportionately likely to be hurt or killed in a crash.
