Below is a link to an interesting article from the Orlando Sentinel about how vehicles traveling on roads with higher speeds are less likely to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. On higher speed roads, the danger is even more serious so it’s an unfortunate irony that drivers are less likely to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Unfortunately, Orlando and Central Florida rank near the top of the most deadly cities for pedestrians. According to this article, on average, two pedestrians are hit and injured by a car or truck every day in the three counties covered by MetroPlan Orlando. One pedestrian is killed by a motor vehicle in a typical week. Failure to observe pedestrians walking across streets leads to tragic and deadly accidents, so watch out for pedestrians and look out for one another.
