Cyclists & Pedestrians

People walking, biking and rolling are more vulnerable to injuries and death from vehicles when using our roadways. These injuries and deaths are preventable. Whether you drive a car, walk, or bike, there are ways we can all be safer when using our roadways. Learn more.

Prevent Falls

Many Vermonters are affected by falls at some point in their life. People who are 65 years and older are increasingly at risk of falling, and therefore potentially injury. As we age, we are more likely to be injured in a fall.

Injury Data

Injury prevention is part of a comprehensive approach to enhancing health and quality of life for all Vermonters. Vermont's Injury Prevention Program uses data to determine activities while improving our understanding of the causes of injury, populations that are most at risk, and trends in a particular type of injury; and assessing the impact of prevention programs.
