Pedestrians Share the Risk. They Also Share the Responsibility.


Own up and walk carefully.  Staying alert and being careful isn't just for when you're behind the wheel.  We all need to take steps to avoid pedestrian injuries and deaths.

Whether driving or walking, alcohol can impair your judgement, coordination and reaction time.

For Drivers:

  • Reduce speed when approaching and yield for pedestrians in crosswalks
  • Stay alert-pedestrians may enter your path suddenly
  • Drive the speed limit and drive to conditions
  • No distracted driving

For Pedestrians:

  • Use sidewalks
  • If a road has no sidewalk, walk on the left side facing traffic
  • Always cross at intersections and use marked crosswalks and crosswalk signals
  • Look carefully for traffic when exiting a vehicle or stepping out
  • No distracted walking
