Livingston County Encourages Safe Habits on the Road
Posted: September 28, 2018
Pedestrians and bicyclists are much more likely to suffer an injury or fatality in a traffic crash than drivers. In fact, while pedestrian and bicycle crashes make up approximately one percent of all traffic crashes, they account for 30 percent of all traffic fatalities in Southeast Michigan.

As a partner in the regional Walk.Bike.Drive.Safe campaign, the Livingston County Road Commission asks everyone who uses the roads in Southeast Michigan to consider a few facts before getting behind the wheel, hopping on a bicycle, or stepping onto the sidewalk.

Distractions are Deadly
Walking in the safest place and maintaining awareness of your surroundings are keys to staying safe while walking.  It is always a good idea for people who are walking to make eye contact with drivers before stepping onto the road.  Using a crosswalk when possible is not just a good idea; it could save your life, as 70% of pedestrian deaths happen outside of a crosswalk.

Avoiding distractions and staying focused on the task at hand will reduce mistakes and prevent mistakes while driving.  Most incidents are preventable, as 94% of crashes are due to human error.  Keeping two hands on the wheel and two eyes on the road saves lives.

Darkness is Deadly
The most dangerous time to walk or ride a bikes is early in the morning or late in the evening.  Danger increases as daylight is reduced in the fall and winter months, and 65% of bicyclists' deaths happen in the dark.  Bike lights and reflective clothing can help keep cyclists more visible and safer, while drivers should always be on teh lookout for people on foot or a bike.
