The Georgia Department of Transportation is partnering with PEDS, a pedestrian advocacy group, to develop a plan to improve safety conditions for people who walk.

PEDS is inviting people to complete five-minute survey that will help guide the plan. To take the survey, click here.

The survey seeks information about the hazards people face while walking and asks for suggested solutions.

The survey asks for demographic information, the frequency of walks and what people consider to be the biggest threats to walking.

According to the survey, pedestrians make up more than 15 percent of transportation fatalities in Georgia, but less than 3 percent of transportation money is spent on sidewalks and street crossings.
