Pedestrian Safety Task Force

Walk-Safe-DAV-Logo

The Pedestrian Safety Task Force was created by the Davidson Board of Commissioners in Summer 2021 in
response to the tragic pedestrian fatality that occurred on Main Street on June 17, 2021. This incident, along with previous devastating fatalities, injuries, and close calls, served as a catalyst for the town board to call for a task force to look specifically at pedestrian safety, namely pedestrian and vehicle conflicts.
