Make Walking Safe posters
More than 270 000 pedestrians die on the world's roads each year. We are all pedestrians, but many transport systems neglect our needs.
Improving roadway lighting, removing obstructions, and wearing light-coloured clothing and reflective materials can save pedestrian lives.
Sidewalks, crosswalks, refuge islands, speed bumps and raised platforms at bus stops can save pedestrian lives.
Legislation and enforcement of laws related to alcohol and speed reinforced by mass media campaigns can save pedestrian lives.
Ensuring the safety of pedestrians encourages walking which impacts positively on health and the environment.
