Crosswalk safety

Caution! Pedestrians are crossing.

Pedestrians are one-and-a-half times more likely to be killed in a crash than passengers in the vehicle. Faster car speeds increase the likelihood of a pedestrian getting hit and being severely injured. Most pedestrian deaths occur in urban areas, locations without marked intersections and at night. Most at risk are older adults, children and individuals impaired by alcohol or drugs.

By being extra vigilant at intersections and crosswalks, drivers can help reduce accidents involving pedestrians.

And that’s smart safety!
