Stepping Up and Out Safely

Nancy White(WASHINGTON, August 5, 2013) People of all ages –from the youngest to the oldest – enjoy walking for leisure, exercise or even as part of their commute, which is why pedestrian safety is so important.   AAA is pleased that Secretary Foxx is bringing attention to this important traffic safety issue and is working with communities across the country to raise awareness on walking safely.

Pedestrian fatalities account for a significant percentage of all traffic related fatalities.   AAA believes that consumer education is a key component of a comprehensive pedestrian program that includes helping walkers get to their destinations safely.  With over 55 million children across the U.S. heading back to school in the next few weeks, it’s important that we all slow down and be mindful of school crossing zones and crossing guards, maintaining safe speed limits and keeping safety top of mind.
