dc.description.abstractSally Flocks is the President and CEO of PEDS, an advocacy organization dedicated to making metro Atlanta safe and accessible for all pedestrians. Sally founded PEDS in 1996 after brain surgery enabled her to control a seizure disorder that had prevented her from driving during most of her adult life. Sally’s efforts as President of PEDS have prompted changes at the local, regional and state levels in Georgia, including making high-visibility crosswalk markings the state standard, publication of a state pedestrian facilities design guidebook, and installation of in-street crosswalk signs, red light cameras, pedestrian refuge islands and HAWK signals. Sally’s presentation will discuss the need for increased investment in sidewalk maintenance in the City of Atlanta and for safe crossings at transit stops throughout the region. Sally served previously on the Board of Directors of America Walks and on the steering committees of Complete Streets and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.en_US
