Did you know that not crossing at an intersection is the deadliest action pedestrians take prior to a crash? This accounts for nearly 25 percent of pedestrian fatalities.

That is why MDOT is working to create better, safer roads for all users by providing a variety of services and information supporting walking and pedestrian safety.
