City of Roanoke Pedestrian Involved Crashes 2014-2018
City of Roanoke staff looked at where crashes between vehicles and pedestrians have happened. The City found that too many pedestrian-involved crashes are related to crosswalks. The map on the right shows the areas where there were pedestrian-involved crashes between 2014 and 2018.
The project team is designing a campaign focused on crosswalk compliance. The goal is for people who drive to follow the law and stop for pedestrians at painted and un-painted crosswalks; and for pedestrians to be predictable by crossing at the corner or a designated crosswalk.
