During the last few weeks, several pedestrians have died after being hit while crossing main roads in our County. In response, Montgomery County has been stepping up efforts to educate pedestrians, particularly in the areas where people have been hit recently.
Please don’t gamble with your life or the lives of others. Pedestrians and drivers each have important responsibilities to keep our roadways safe.
- Pedestrians: When crossing the street, do not forget to be alert, be visible, use the pedestrian crosswalk, and wait for the walk signal.
- Drivers: Slow down, yield to pedestrians, be very alert when making turns, and avoid distractions.
