St. Louis (KSDK) -- There is a new push to make sure cyclists and motorists stay safe in St. Louis.
Transportation officials met outside the Missouri History Museum at 7:30 a.m. Thursday to launch a road safety campaign.
Trailnet, The Missouri Department of Transportation, and Metro teamed up to kick off the initiative. The "Safe Roads for All" campaign aims to significantly reduce all injuries and fatalities.
Transportation officials discussed how pedestrians and bicyclists need to understand that they have primary responsibility for their own safety. They also addressed how drivers have a responsibility to share the road. Officials said not only are there distracted drivers but distracted pedestrians.
After the news conference, Trailnet brought a group of cyclists on a safety ride downtown. And Metro took a group of pedestrians to Forest Park's MetroLink stop to take the train downtown.
