A new study from AAA found that hit-and-run fatalities reached an all-time high in 2016. Most fatalities in hit-and-runs are people walking or biking. Drivers should always be alert and on the lookout for pedestrians and bicyclists. People who are walking or biking should also know and follow relevant laws to stay safe.
We are working to improve safety for all Southwest Iowans--whether on foot, on bike, or in a motor vehicle--through our Bicycle Education program. Check out the webpage or contact us to learn more. We should all do our part to reduce the number of hit-and-runs to zero!
