The AARP Walk Audit Tool Kit is designed to help individuals, groups and local leaders assess the walkability of the sidewalks and streets in their community. The toolkit provides step-by-step instructions and checklists for examining intersections, sidewalks, driver behavior, public safety and more. The documented results can be shared with elected officials and other local leaders when advocating for such safe streets features as sidewalks, crosswalks and properly-timed traffic lights.
