    Excessive speeding is a major hazard on pedestrian streets. When drivers speed, and are busy texting/on the phone, this is a recipe for a fatal and life altering injury
  • Ignoring stop signs:
    These stop signs are in place to help protect pedestrians, and when drivers disregard basic safety issues – this can lead to fatal pedestrian accidents.
  • Ignoring surroundings:
    If a driver is not careful you might miss important details while driving – like children in the vicinity, especially if they aren’t under the direct supervision of adults. In many cases, careless drivers cause accidents when they ignore their surroundings and don’t see children in the area.
