Active Streets LA Toolkit

We worked with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and LADOT to develop a set of flashcards that educate community members about street treatments to improve safety in their neighborhoods. The cards are used at outreach events, to get community feedback about safety issues on neighborhood streets and design changes that could help.

The bilingual (Spanish and English) cards use simple illustrations to describe each street treatment and non-technical language to explain their uses and benefits. A system of icons also compares the benefits and costs of each, so residents can understand what might be feasible in a given situation in their neighborhood.
