Share the Road: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility
With warmer weather, you’re likely seeing more bikes on the road, so it’s a perfect time for a reminder to Share the Road.
Prevent a Deadly Crash
As more Americans choose to ride bikes and walk to stay healthy, and as an alternative to driving, pedestrian and cyclist deaths in motor-vehicle-related crashes have increased over the past 10 years.
Bicyclists: There were 857 bicyclists killed in collisions with vehicles in 2018 …
- That’s a more than 6% increase from 2017.
- And up from 718 bicyclist deaths in 2008.
Pedestrians: In 2018, 6,283 pedestrians died in traffic crashes …
- A more than 3% increase over the previous year.
- The most deaths since 1990.
- And up from 4,414 in 2008.
Motorcyclists: The number of people killed on motorcycles in 2018 was 4,985, that’s an almost 5% decrease from 2017.
Join us in helping to keep everyone safe on the road. Remember, no one—no driver, cyclist, or pedestrian—has sole rights to the road. It’s a shared space where we all have rights and responsibilities.
