October is Pedestrian Safety Month. Thanks to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for the following information:

A traffic-related pedestrian death occurs every 81 minutes in the U.S. Pedestrian safety is a two-way street. Whether you’re a driver or pedestrian, these simple tips can keep you and others safe:

👀👀 Pay attention: By simply obeying traffic rules and being aware of vehicles and people in your vicinity, you greatly reduce your chances of being in a collision.

🚫📱 Don’t drive or walk distracted: Distraction changes the way we react and behave. Whether driver or pedestrian, put down the phone and pay attention to what’s ahead.
🚫🍺 Don’t drive or walk impaired: Alcohol and drug impairment can have deadly consequences. Nearly half of all traffic-related pedestrian fatalities involve an impaired driver or impaired pedestrian.

🌙🔦 Be alert at night: 3 out of 4 pedestrian fatalities occur in the dark. Pedestrians, make yourself more visible by wearing bright, reflective clothing and consider carrying a flashlight.
