Free Pedestrian Safety DVDs Available from MCDOT

Two pedestrian safety videos--one aimed at drivers and the other at walkers--are available from the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) Pedestrian Safety program.

“Drive Safe®!: Keeping Pedestrians Safe When You’re Behind the Wheel” is an instructional video designed to teach pedestrian safety concepts to new drivers.

“WalkSafe! (TM): Keeping Pedestrians Safe in the “Danger Zone” is an English-language instructional video designed to teach pedestrians how to stay safe. It is geared towards non-native English speakers and for use in ESOL classes, but is also appropriate for elementary and middle school students. The video comes with a teacher’s guide that includes instructional activities.

To order either of these videos, email MCDOT or call the Community Outreach office at 240-777-7155.
