Pedestrians of all ages are at risk of injury or death from traffic crashes, but some people are at higher risk.

•Male pedestrians are more likely to die or be injured in a motor vehicle crash than females.

•Teen and young adult (ages 15-29 years) pedestrians are more likely to be treated in emergency departments for crash-related injuries compared to any other age group.

•The rate of pedestrian death generally increases with age.

•In 2012, 34% of all pedestrians killed in traffic crashes were legally drunk, with a blood alcohol concentration of greater than or equal to 0.08 grams per deciliter.

Take Steps for Safety

Whenever you’re walking, keep these tips in mind:

•Whenever possible, cross the street at a designated crosswalk or intersection.

•Increase your visibility at night by carrying a flashlight and wearing retro-reflective clothing.

•It’s safest to walk on a sidewalk, but if one is not available, walk on the shoulder and face traffic.
