WalkWise Florida began in the Tampa Bay area in 2010 as “WalkWise Tampa Bay”, a grassroots initiative funded by the Florida Department of Transportation, District 7 (Tampa Bay area). A few years later, several other Florida counties showed interest in providing this unique interactive community presentation. The program provides an informative, free 20-30 minute safety education presentation with time for discussion to anyone living or working in select Florida counties. The WalkWise presentation has been delivered to residents in 15 out of the 21 high priority counties in Florida since 2010. WalkWise Florida is managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at USF and funded by the Florida Department of Transportation. Download Handout
