When Hispanic and Latino immigrants arrive to the States, they often rely on bicycles and/or walking as their primary means of transportation. However, they may not be familiar with our traffic signs, signals and practices. Their language barrier may also affect their ability to understand how to safely travel. For these reasons, they are at a higher risk of being involved in pedestrian and/or bicycle crashes.
We encourage local, State, and national traffic safety advocates to download and use these traffic safety materials in Spanish to educate the Hispanic and Latino community on pedestrian and bicycle safety in the United States, especially those newly-arrived to the States who are unfamiliar with our safety laws.
