Safe Driving Campaign Aims to Reduce Pedestrian Injuries

Posted - December 24, 2021
Reducing Pedestrian Accidents in Dallas-Fort Worth

The North Texas Council of Governments has recently initiated a new educational program aimed at helping people be safer drivers. The “Drive Aware North Texas” campaign is designed to reduce the number of serious accidents occurring in the Dallas-Fort Worth areas. According to statistics, distracted driving, driving while impaired, and speeding account for a majority of all accidents that occur. The Council hopes that by launching this campaign, they can significantly reduce the number of accidents happening each year.

Car Accidents, Truck Accidents, and Pedestrian Accidents Are Completely Preventable

When you look at some of the statistics being released by various agencies about vehicular accidents, a majority of these accidents are caused by distracted drivers. Between 2016 and 2020, over 77,000 accidents in North Texas alone were attributed to distracted driving. The leading cause of those distractions was handheld devices. These same statistics show that victims of pedestrian accidents suffer the most severe injuries during these events. The unprotected pedestrian can face life-changing injuries when involved in a car accident or truck accident because they do not have the same physical protections as the passengers in the vehicles.
