October is Pedestrian Safety Month!

At some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian. Unfortunately, pedestrian injuries and fatalities remain high. In 2020, a pedestrian was killed every 81 minutes in traffic crashes.

Pedestrian safety is a two-way street that involves equal respect and responsibility between pedestrians, motor vehicle operators, and all other road users.
