Pedestrian Safety Awareness Month

Posted On by

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has designated October as Pedestrian Safety Month.

Whether it be in a parking lot, crosswalk, or on a road, everyone is a pedestrian. In 2016, there were 5,987 pedestrians killed in traffic crashes in the United States (a 9 percent increase from 2015), which equates to a death every 1.5 hours.

Pedestrian safety is crucial to know for both pedestrians and motor vehicle operators.
