There is no winner in a contest between a vehicle and a pedestrian. On average, about 100 pedestrians are killed each year in Maryland. It’s hard to fathom that the cost to cross the street could be one’s life, but in 2011, 11 pedestrians were killed in Montgomery County.  The Four Corners area, where Blair High School is located, is one of the areas in the County with the highest incidence of pedestrian crashes, and more than a third of those involve pedestrians under the age of 20.

*See them see you: make eye contact with drivers so you know they see you.*
*Wait for the walk: never begin crossing the street on solid or flashing “Don’t  Walk” signals.*
*Always cross at crosswalks and intersections: don’t cross mid-block.*
*Go reflective, so drivers can see you! (especially at night and in bad weather)*
