As you know, we are a bustling campus with many modes of transportation. Over the years and in partnership with the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) and our own Department of Transportation Services (DOTS), there have been many new measures implemented that have improved the safety of all those in our campus community.

And as a reminder, when you are traveling on and around campus you should Walk Smart, Bike Smart, Drive Smart and Scoot Smart.

Tips for Drivers:

  • Stay alert and give driving your full attention
  • Show courtesy to other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists
