IN THE COMMUNITY
AAA considers pedestrian safety a priority. Traffic Safety Leads are in schools daily, educating children about safe walking skills.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, 4,092 pedestrians were killed and an estimated 59,000 were injured in traffic crashes in the United States. On average, a pedestrian is killed in a motor vehicle crash every 128 minutes and one is injured every 9 minutes. In 2009, pedestrian deaths accounted for 12 percent of all traffic fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. On a positive note, since 2000, the number of pedestrian fatalities has decreased by 14 percent. Drivers should always be alert to handicapped pedestrians, observing all advance warning signs of seeing or hearing impaired pedestrians. Show extra caution and be prepared to stop for pedestrians:
