Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Roadway Safety Campaign

Activity has increased by 70 percent on Dallas-Fort Worth bicycle-pedestrian trails due to the COVID-19 pandemic as more people are  biking and walking, putting a greater focus on the importance of safety for all users of the transportation system. Look Out Texans, a regional public safety and education campaign, is sharing tips to help make the region’s roads safer for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Look Out Texans features tips such as yielding to people in crosswalks and giving three feet of space when passing a bicyclist. Data shows that people between 23 and 33 years old are most likely to be involved in pedestrian crashes and that most fatalities happen at night.

The Look Out Texans campaign coordinates with the work of local, state and federal transportation partners focused on improving reliability and safety through roadway design solutions and greater awareness of how people can bike, walk and drive safely.
