can be FATAL!
12,200 pedestrians were killed by automobiles last year—1,340 more than the
year before. Two out of every three violated traffic laws or committed unsafe
acts which contributed to their deaths/
And believe it or not—many of these fatal accidents actually happened
less than six feet from the curb—only a step or two from safety!
Between intersection accidents accounted for more than one-third of all
pedestrian fatalities last year. These victims carelessly rushed out from be
hind parked cars, or simply jaywalked themselves into traffic—and death.
Others even ignored the safety of lights and traffic officers at intersections
to save a few seconds—and lost their lives.
Never take safety for granted. Cross at intersections within the cross
walks. Wait for the light or the policeman’s whistle. Be alert for the incon
siderate driver making a right turn, or the reckless one beating a light. On
open highways, allow for the speed of approaching cars.1 Walk to the left,
Whenever you cross, look both ways. One step can be fatal!
