0% Chance of Survival

A pedestrian struck by a vehicle at 40 mph has just a 15 percent chance to survive. Driving slower in high foot-traffic areas helps reduce the chances of survival if a pedestrian is struck.

0 Accidents Caused By Cell Phone Usage

More than 1.6 million accidents each year are attributed to a driver's use of a cell phone. This is dangerous to both motorists and pedestrians, particularly in high foot-traffic areas.
