A new bill proposes to make Maryland school zones safer for pedestrians, cyclists

March 18, 2021

Most people look forward to a new school in their neighborhood, but aren’t as excited about the potential for more car traffic and unsafe conditions for walking and biking. A new bill making its way through the General Assembly in Maryland seeks to fix that. The School Pedestrian Safety Act (HB 487), proposed by Montgomery County’s Delegate Jared Solomon (D-18), will require school districts to collaborate with the community as well as local and state transportation agencies to incorporate pedestrian safety plans very early in the planning process of any construction or renovations made to school buildings throughout the state.
