September is Pedestrian Safety Month and the City of Menlo Park will participate in activities throughout the month to encourage the safety of people walking.
Based on data projections from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), 7,485 people, or an average of 20 people every day, died after being struck by a vehicle last year – an 11.5% increase from 2020 and a 40-year high.
Safety is a two-way street. Drivers and pedestrians must work together to demonstrate safe behaviors on the road, helping to protect themselves and those around them. We have some safety tips to help make the roads safe for everyone in our community.
The Safe Routes to School Program offers many resources to teach and promote pedestrian safety.
