In a continuing effort to reduce pedestrian collisions in Montgomery County parking lots, teams of County staff and volunteers will be at local parking lots this summer to educate people about ways to improve safety.
The effort is part of a broader campaign to educate drivers and pedestrians about reducing pedestrian collisions in parking lots. In Montgomery County, about one in four pedestrian collisions occurs in parking lots, which can result in debilitating injuries. The goal of the public education campaign is to change attitudes and behaviors in parking lots.
If you’d like to help spread the word about improving parking lot pedestrian safety via social media or through civic, school, religious or neighborhood organizations to which you belong, see our resources on reducing pedestrian collisions in parking lots.
If you’re interested in volunteering to help distribute information in parking lots this summer, contact the Public Information Office.
