Sally Flocks founded PEDS in 1996 after surgery helped control a seizure disorder that has prevented her from driving during most of her adult life. Sally’s efforts as President of PEDS have prompted changes at the local, regional and state level in Georgia and have made PEDS one of the most effective transportation reform organizations in the United States. Sally served previously on the Board of Directors of America Walks, a national coalition of pedestrian advocacy groups, the Steering Committee of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, and on the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Bicycle-Pedestrian Task Force.
