Sunset This Week: Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrian Safety ProgramThis Thursday we will be at the Hilton for a
Pedestrian Safety program, brought to us by USF. Walking is good for your health and the environment. Pedestrians, however, are among the most vulnerable users of roadways. On average, 324 people are treated in emergency departments every 24 hours, with one pedestrian dying every two hours from injuries suffered. Safety is a shared responsibility for all road users. It’s important to understand the risks and learn how to stay safe when heading out on foot.

Come join us for a drink and this important information!
