"BE SAFE BE SEEN"
Bicycle and pedestrian injuries and fatalities are a critical national and local safety concern. From 2005-2010, 2,000 bicyclists and pedestrians were injured in Massachusetts and 420 persons died while walking on or near Massachusetts roadways.
The Highway Safety Division created the “Be Seen Be Safe” campaign, emphasizing safety tips and traffic regulations for pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as to alert drivers. As part of this campaign, and to augment your efforts, we have created a PSA video that educates viewers on safety precautions for bicyclists and pedestrians. If disseminated, we believe that the PSA will help reduce accidents, injuries and fatalities.
