AARP Walk Audit Tool Kit
In too many communities, people can’t safely walk to where they need or want to go due to a lack of sidewalks, crosswalks or other safety features that make streets safe for pedestrians and drivers. This free publication can be used by local leaders, advocates, community organizations and residents to assess and report on the safety and walkability of a street, intersection or neighborhood.

Esta publicación gratuita puede ser utilizada por líderes locales, defensores, organizaciones comunitarias y residentes para evaluar e informar sobre la seguridad y la transitabilidad de una calle, intersección o vecindario.
