How Parking Lot Safety Products Enhance the Protection of Pedestrians

Having the necessary parking lot and garage safety products is not only a necessity for protecting your facility, but is also for the safety of pedestrians.

This year the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety, created a campaign around improving the safety of pedestrians and preventing traffic crashes - Drive Safely Work Week (DSWW) 2011, “Focus 360°: Getting there safely is everyone’s business.”

Here are some interesting facts pertaining to pedestrian accidents:

  • On average in 2009, a pedestrian was killed every two hours and inured every nine minutes in traffic crashes.
  • Hybrid vehicles were found to be twice as likely to be involved in pedestrian crashes at low speeds compared to cars with conventional engines.
  • One in 6 drivers traveling through an active school zone is distracted by the use of cell phones, electronics, eating/drinking.
