SEPTEMBER IS BICYCLIST AND PEDESTRIAN AWARENESS MONTH

  • Last year, 123 pedestrians died as a result of collisions with motor vehicles - a 7.9% increase compared to 2017.
  • 13 bicyclists, 568 drivers, and 128 passengers died because of traffic crashes during the same period. In 2018, Virginia averaged one traffic crash every 4 minutes!
  • Each day, 2.2 lives were lost and 182 people were injured on Virginia's roadways.

The only acceptable number of traffic fatalities is zero!
