PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch says, "Whether you're in a vehicle or a pedestrian walking across the street, we all have equal responsibilities to think of safety first on our roadways."
Schoch added,"These videos are a great way to educate our youth on lifelong safe walking habits, and they're a resource for parents to help keep their kids safe."
Each video targets different audiences at various stages of learning pedestrian safety or driving near pedestrians. The videos are intended primarily for parents of elementary school students, elementary-school students, middle-school students and young or first-time drivers.
PennDOT data shows that in the past five years, there were 4,558 pedestrian injuries and 743 pedestrians lost their lives in Pennsylvania traffic crashes. In that same time period, there were 22,144 reported crashes involving pedestrians.
Of the pedestrians killed in crashes in the past five years, 86 were 18 years old or younger.
