In just one year, pedestrian fatalities jumped 11% in the United States. Many of us – especially college students – travel on foot often. Our goal is to raise awareness about pedestrian accidents and highlight ways for people to stay safe.
The Roberts Law Pedestrian Safety Scholarship asks students to write blog-post style articles on pedestrian safety. The winner will be posted on the Roberts Law Blog and shared via our Facebook page.
