Pedestrians

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.
