The city was one of five Platinum award winners in AAA’s annual Community Traffic Safety Awards Program, which recognizes outstanding communities for their efforts to make the region’s roadways safer for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.The community was honored October 15th during a luncheon ceremony at The Carltun in East Meadow, New York.

Why They’re Winners:The city has consistently had better than national and state average seat belt use, bicycle injuries are down 63%, red light running crashes are down 33%, and vehicle occupant injuries are also down 29%.

White Plains has implemented significant traffic engineering projects throughout the years, and has continued to add a vast amount of new bike lanes, oversized signs, adaptive controls, advance walk signals, flexible delineator posts, and pedestrian countdown signals, just to name a few. The city also conducted a Public Safety Citizen’s Academy for high school students. Graduated students became better equipped to assess safety issues and share their knowledge of law enforcement practices.
