Crosswalk Safety: Take a Walk
Crosswalk:
Do's and Don'ts
Conclusion
Cross walk safety is vital to environmental occupational health because of the impact it has on public health and the safety of our nation's youth. Education/awareness programs and policies need to be implemented to decrease the number of cross walk accidents and deaths annually. It is our job as public health advocates to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists through actively informing this population. Our ultimate goal is to beat the statistics we are currently faced with.
Crosswalk Safety is important for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers
