BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Officials in Brattleboro, Vt., are conducting "walking audits" to help improve pedestrian safety.
Brattleboro planner Sue Fillon is meeting residents on Thursday to walk around a local park and in neighborhoods to gather ideas on how the town can improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.
Fillon said the audits allow planners to see the roads from a pedestrian's perspective and hear from the people who use the roads every day.
Brattleboro has had three traffic-related fatalities in recent months, and at least six more accidents involving cars and pedestrians.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the select board was expected Tuesday to talk about adding stop signs to one area in front of the park.
