Nearly 500 cities, states, and counties around the United States have enacted complete streets policies, according to Smart Growth America. Now a bipartisan team of lawmakers has introduced legislation to make it a matter of national policy that streets should be designed not only for driving, but for walking, biking, and transit as well.

Last week, Reps. Doris Matsui, D-Calif., and David Joyce, R-Ohio, introduced the Safe Streets Act of 2013, which would require states and regional planning agencies to develop complete streets policies for federally funded projects within two years.
