Seattle launches holiday pedestrian safety campaign

by | Dec 10, 2010

The City of Seattle has begun a holiday pedestrian safety campaign to try to eliminate crashes between cars and pedestrians during dark, rainy months, as well as the holidays, when everyone is distracted. The campaign is called “See You in the Crosswalk.”
The city suggests following these rules:
Motorists should:

  • Never pass a vehicle stopped at a crosswalk
  • Put away their cell phones
  • Yield to pedestrians
  • Make eye contact with pedestrians before proceeding through a crosswalk or intersection

Pedestrians should:

  • Use the sidewalk and marked crosswalks
  • Wear bright clothing
  • Turn off headphones
  • Make eye contact with drivers who are approaching
