In summer 2017, MassDOT launched a statewide campaign to raise awareness about the need for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to safely share our Commonwealth’s streets. This initiative seeks to help reduce the number of motor vehicle crashes involving pedestrian and cyclists by reminding motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists to “Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet.” The campaign slogan emphasizes the notion that everyone who is traveling on a roadway is responsible for doing his/her part to ensure safety. 

Write and produce a one minute commercial video that focuses on one or several of the crash statistics from the campaign and be sure to use the slogan “Scan the Street for Wheels and Feet.”

Campaign crash statistics:

  • 1 in 4 deaths in motor vehicle crashes involve people walking or bicycling.
  • 30% of fatal or serious injuries from crashes involving people walking happen in marked crosswalks.
  • 31% of fatal or serious injuries from crashes involving people bicycling happen when vehicles are turning.
  • 33% of fatal or serious injuries from crashes involving people bicycling happen at intersections.
  • 47% of fatal or serious injuries from crashes involving people walking happen in the dark.

Other highlight safety tips:

  • Check your mirrors and blind spots for people bicycling.
  • Be careful when approaching crosswalks. If another driver has stopped, there may be a person crossing
