Moving in Harmony
Motorists aren't the only ones using Nashville's roads. They share the streets with pedestrians and cyclists too. But, the road can be a very dangerous place for pedestrians and cyclists if drivers don't share the roads with care. From 2004-2008, 69 pedestrians and 5 cyclists were killed, and 1,118 pedestrians and 257 cyclists were injured on Davidson County roads.
Moving in Harmony is a campaign to increase pedestrian, cyclist and motorist safety with an end goal of eliminating deaths and reducing injuries due to pedestrian or bicycle and motor vehicle collisions. The city of Nashville is committed to the improvement of safety through continued education and improved infrastructure to ensure we can all move in harmony on Nashville's roads.
This web site contains laws and recommendations for walking, biking and driving safely in Nashville, as well as resources for cyclists and pedestrians. For a complete list of all laws, and regulations regarding motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians please visit the Tennessee State Safety Resource Center website.
