Refining C3 Context-Classification Criteria for Low-Income and Minority Populations

FDOT’s context classification system seeks to provide guidance for design of streets in different developmental contexts. While this prescriptive approach to street design can greatly aid in addressing the safety needs of pedestrians and bicyclists, it presumes that rates of walking and bicycling are more likely to occur in areas with more “urban” developmental patterns. While this is certainly true for more affluent populations, for whom non-motorized travel is a choice, it is often not the case for lower income populations, which report lower levels of automobile ownership and thus greater reliance on walking, bicycling, and transit to accomplish basic travel objectives.
