Walking safety and rules

Road safety is a shared responsibility between motorists and those who walk, ride and roll. Road users must follow traffic laws and safety principles.

Why to walk

Walking is free, good for your health and good for the environment. Our city features vibrant walking trails along the Mississippi River and our many lakes. Plus, over 92% of our streets have sidewalks on both sides, adding up to just under 1,800 miles of city sidewalk.
