Pedestrian Safety on Main Streets

MEDIA, Oct. 24 – Safer Main Streets save lives and grow our economy, and the House Majority Policy Committee heard about the need for more state investment during their tour and discussion Tuesday with local leaders in Delaware County. The benefits for creating safer Main Streets include healthier recreational options, economic development, more transportation choices and – ultimately – lessening the financial burden on taxpayers. The House Majority Policy Committee toured and rode the SEPTA trolley in Media to talk with local leaders Tuesday about potential improvements in Delaware County and across the state.
