Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — Driving down the street in just a few seconds can be fatal.
“2020 was one of the deadliest years on our roads,” said Erica Frazel of the Tucson City Transport Authority.
The number of fatal accidents in Tucson, including all means of transportation, has steadily increased since 2015. In 2020, the Tucson Municipal Transport Authority reported 88 fatal accidents. More than two of the three collisions involved pedestrians.
“We were able to figure out what the statistics were and see where the areas needed to further expand education were in action,” says Frazelle.
The Tucson Municipal Transport Authority has partnered with the Tucson Police to share a message on road safety.
“Our outreach consists of advertising and advertising them where the travelers are actually. Bus wraps are advertised behind the bus. If you’re sitting in a stoplight Can read those messages and leave them in the bus shelter. “
The city also sends their message on social media. They are targeting each mode of transportation in the hope that they can save more lives.
“There are too many deaths on our roads. All of us can play our part and make small changes to keep each other safe and prevent unnecessary deaths on the road.” Said Fraselle.
