Drivers -- we -- share the responsibility for preventing pedestrian-related deaths and injuries.
We Pledge To: Slow Down and Think about Who might be out on the road.
The difference between fatality rates of walkers increases from 5% at 20mph to 45% at 30mph.
When a driver slows, she might be able to stop before she hits another person. By expecting to see your neighbor walking a dog or a child on a bicycle -- and looking for them, you increase your chances of seeing them, and of not hitting them.
Saving a life today could be as easy as:
1. Slowing down.
2. Expecting to see people.
