In a continuing effort to reduce pedestrian collisions in Montgomery County parking lots, teams of staff and volunteers will be at parking lots across the County this summer to educate people about ways to improve safety. This is part of a broader education campaign to educate drivers and pedestrians about reducing pedestrian collisions in parking lots. About one in four pedestrian collisions in Montgomery County occurs in parking lots and can result in debilitating injuries.
The goal of this public education campaign is to change attitudes and behaviors in parking lots.
If you’d like to help spread the word about improving parking lot pedestrian safety via social media or through civic, school, religious or neighborhood organizations to which you belong, please to see our resources on reducing pedestrian collisions in parking lots. And, if you’re interested in volunteering to help distribute information in parking lots this summer, please contact Lorraine Driscoll in the Public Information Office.
