New Jersey Department of Transportation

NJDOT is a leader in working to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety throughout the Garden State. Under the leadership of Commissioner James S. Simpson and Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Sheree Davis, the Department promoted complete streets through its website and a series of workshops in 2012, and NJDOT's own complete streets policy was ranked as the best in the nation by the National Complete Streets Coalition - ahead of more than 210 communities and states. NJDOT's work supported the passage of 22 local complete streets policies in 2012 and the opening of the new Route 52 Causeway, which includes a multi-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists.

AARP-New Jersey

Under the leadership of Governmental Affairs Manager Doug Johnston and Director of Advocacy Brian McGuire, AARP-NJ has worked tirelessly for safer streets for seniors and people of all ages in New Jersey. Since 2011, Tri-State has partnered with AARP to draw attention to dangerous roadways across the state, conducting road safety audits, encouraging municipalities to adopt complete streets policies and advocating for federal complete streets legislation.

Patty Woodworth, owner of Action Wheels Bike Shop in Deptford, NJ

Ms. Woodworth is an ardent advocate for improved safety for pedestrians and bicyclists on New Jersey roads. As a business owner, cyclist, activist, and parent, Patty has called attention to the unsafe walking and biking environment in Gloucester County.
