How to Report Your Safety Concerns:
There are different ways to report safety concerns to County staff depending on the issue:
- To report an issue with existing equipment or infrastructure, use the County’s Request for Service portal.
- To request an investigation into a specific safety issue, complete a Traffic Investigation Form.
- If you do not see the type of issue that you would like to report in the portal or investigation form, you may email DES-TEO@arlingtonva.us with your concerns.
Staff actively review and respond to requests through each of these channels. Thank you for being an advocate for safety in Arlington!

Engagement Forms Available at Central Library
For those who were not able to engage online, we set up a kiosk at the Central Library pick-up location. We provided paper copies of the engagement form in English and Spanish for community members to take home, review, and then send feedback via mail. We included an addressed and stamped envelope to help with return, too.
Action Plan Public Engagement Checkpoint #2: Learning from Your Experiences
Our second public engagement checkpoint for the Vision Zero Action Plan concluded on October 30, 2020. This conversation focused on learning from your experiences. Staff have reviewed the feedback we received, and put together this summary.
County staff have also completed analysis of crash reports, and we learned a lot about where and how collisions occur.
But we know it’s not the whole story. To take action on safety issues before crashes occur, we asked the people who travel in Arlington every day.
Here’s how we collected feedback in the second public engagement checkpoint:
Virtual Public Meetings
We hosted two public engagement meetings for you to learn more, ask questions about our crash analysis work, and help build our shared knowledge about transportation safety.
Fecha: 30 Septiembre de 2020
Hora: A las 7 de la tarde
Date: October 1, 2020
Online Feedback Form
The online feedback form allowed people to tell us about their experiences when walking, biking, rolling, or driving in Arlington. The form included an interactive map, where users marked the location of transportation safety issues that you have noticed or experienced first-hand.
Dial-In Comment Line
We accepted comments on your transportation safety experiences by phone as well. Phone prompts were available in English and Spanish, and the feedback was included with the online form feedback for review.
