Pedestrian Safety

Walking is involved in every trip - whether by personal car, rail, bicycle, bus or air. Unfortunately, pedestrians are especially vulnerable in crashes with motor vehicles. In the final months of 2014, the Franklin County Sheriff's Office Traffic Bureau investigated six crashes involving eight pedestrians, four of them killed.

Everyone can benefit from a better understanding of pedestrian safety. When walking, please remember:

When driving, please remember:

The National Highway Transportation Safety Commission recognizes that Everyone's a Pedestrian.
