Everyone has different preferences when it comes to transportation, but there's one that all road users share - everyone is a pedestrian. Unfortunately, pedestrians were one of the few groups of road users to experience an increase in fatalities in the United States in 2011, totaling 4,432 deaths.
We are working hard to raise awareness of the dangers to pedestrians, and to provide leadership, expertise, and resources to communities across America to combat these crashes. We urge parents, caregivers, educators, traffic safety officials, and advocates to make the most of our pedestrian safety resources to improve the quality of life in their communities.DOT unveils new tools to help communities keep pedestrians safe
