What Can You Do?

  • Slow down. Higher speeds lead to more severe injuries for drivers, passengers, and other road users during a crash.

  • Stay alert. Be aware of other road users, especially pedestrians and cyclists; adjust your driving during severe weather or other events.

  • Spread the word. Tell your family, friends, and colleagues about the planning process.
