“For a variety of reasons, a lot of people are walking, biking, and taking mass transportation in New Jersey, yet we are still building and upgrading streets with no sidewalks, no crosswalks and no bike lanes. This has to stop,” said Pete Kasabach, Executive Director of New Jersey Future.

“Older people deal with the effects of incomplete streets every day, and make up a disproportionate share of pedestrians killed by cars in New Jersey. The needs of seniors and other pedestrians must be taken into account when streets and highways are built and repaired,” said Janine Bauer, a volunteer transportation advocate for AARP in New Jersey.
