Heads up for Pedestrians
Everyone walks. Work, shop or play, your journey always begins and ends on foot. Even a single pedestrian fatality is too many for Utah. Be alert when you’re driving and be seen when you are a pedestrian. If we can share the road, we can reach our goal of Zero Fatalities.
TIPS FOR Pedestrians

TIPS FOR MOTORISTS
Drivers have a responsibility to watch for pedestrians
And not just at intersections and crosswalks. Stay alert around schools and busy community centers.
Always stop before the white line and proceed only when the roadway is clear.
Watch for cars and pedestrians when turning right into a crosswalk
Be extra careful when driving in residential areas. Slow down in neighborhoods and watch out for children at play.
