October is National Pedestrian Safety Month!
With reduced daylight and varying weather conditions, the changing seasons bring new challenges. October is a dedicated time to spotlight the well-being of pedestrians and raise awareness about precautions we can take to ensure safer streets and crossings.
National Pedestrian Safety Month provides a valuable opportunity to educate communities, advocate for safer infrastructure, and emphasize the importance of attentiveness.
✔️ Always obey traffic laws and avoid all distractions.
✔️ If you are a pedestrian, wear reflective or bright clothing or carry a flashlight: make sure you are visible!
✔️ Utilize crosswalks while walking and yield to pedestrians while driving.
Let’s come together to champion pedestrian safety. By sharing information, educating our communities, and advocating for safer streets, we can save lives and make transportation safer for all!
