Pedestrian Safety is Everyone's Responsibility

If you've driven in Hillsborough County lately, you know that our area roads are increasingly busier. That's why drivers and pedestrians have a shared responsibility of keeping themselves and others safe.

Pedestrian Tips to Follow

  • Always cross at the crosswalk. Look for the white painted lines at intersections and street corners.
  • Before crossing the street, remember to look left, then right, then left again.
  • If you're out at night, wear bright colored clothing. You want to make yourself as visible as possible to on coming traffic.
Driver Tips to Follow
  • Be prepared to stop at all marked crosswalks.
  • Stay alert for  bicyclists and pedestrians.
  • Wait until pedestrians have crossed at least one lane past your lane before resuming travel.
Through education and increased awareness, we hope to have a significant impact on reducing pedestrian crashes in our state.
