This bill creates a Pedestrian Safety Study Commission to study and report on the issue of pedestrian safety in New Jersey. In conducting its inquiry, the commission is to study and analyze: the rights, duties, and responsibilities of pedestrians and motorists; the availability and effectiveness of driving education and training programs for New Jersey's drivers; the type of motor vehicle violations, including excessive speed, that are contributing factors in pedestrian accidents; municipal planning practices, especially concerning pedestrian facilities and adequate sidewalks, lighting, and pedestrian waiting areas or safety zones; State planning processes, including pedestrian facilities; current applicable speed limits and the need to lower those speed limits in certain locations in keeping with pedestrian safety and traffic movement; the use and effectiveness of public awareness campaigns on the issue of pedestrian safety; additional legislative and regulatory solutions, including the imposition of fines for violating applicable pedestrian laws; and other issues and matters as the commission may deem appropriate to fulfill the scope of its charge. The study commission will issue its findings, conclusions, and recommendations in an initial report to the Governor and the Legislature no later than one year following the first organizational meeting of the commission, and thereafter, for the next five years, submit an annual report to the Governor and Legislature. The study commission will expire upon the submission of the final report in the sixth year after its creation.
