One-third of Americans do not drive or own cars, and 12 percent of all U.S. trips are made by walking or bicycling, yet these modes account for 14 percent of traffic fatalities and only 1.6 percent of federal transportation funding. Of the trips taken in U.S. metros, 50 percent are three miles or less; nearly 30 percent are one mile or less. And despite the fact that 55 percent of Americans want to bike more, drive less and walk more than they do now, 65 percent of trips under one mile are still taken by automobile due to inadequate facilities for active transportation. With Tennessee ranked fourth in the nation for obesity rates, the MPO is pursuing infrastructure policies that reflect a desire for healthier options to get around communities - including safer, more convenient means to walk or cycle for routine trips.
