My interest in Pedestrian Crossings and Public Safety Education is a result of my involvement in a vehicle injury in early 2013. I was waiting on a crosswalk signal to turn white. As I started through the intersection a man in a red pickup truck rolled through a red light. Suddenly, he revs up his engine and slams into me. Then I’m jumping from underneath his bumper chasing him because he attempted to drive off.
After the accident… I received $1300.00 cash and $2700.00 in medical payouts. This amount is not enough to compensate me for missing work. This amount unfortunately does not cover all my medical bills. Nor does this amount cover the permanent reoccurring trauma and chronic back pain, I suffer and live with everyday.
In order to secure this vision for ALL OF US we have to actively campaign to organize to raise money for funding. The $10,000.00 would be spent to fully manage and create the elements of the Pedestrian Safety Campaign Planner.

Car Dealerships and Automotive Technicians ALL have the PEDESTRIAN SAFETY AWARENESS ‘Spirit of Protection.’ Not only for Driver Occupants for the World in General. Just this year several automotive companies have aligned with consumer protection and safety organizations to transform Connective Vehicle Systems traditionally thought to plague the Public Safety Awareness community because of the technological amenities provided to car buyers to keep them thinking about everything focused driving.
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon has taken “AUTONOMOUS ASYNCHRONOUS TECHNOLOGY AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY,” to the next level. This vehicle design hosts Safety Systems which help protect drivers, passengers, people in other vehicles on the road, as well as, pedestrians. Multi-feature active safety packages automated pre-collision warning and braking. These designs also support the driver’s awareness, decision-making and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds under certain conditions. Within these integrated system, Key features help address areas of accident protection that were at one time were not feasible. These key features help to: mitigate or prevent frontal collisions; helping to keep drivers within their lane; and enhancing road safety during nighttime driving. Always drive safely, obey traffic speed limits and laws, and focus on the road while driving. Distracted Driving is becoming the number one reason for fatalities on our nations roads. To minimize the impact of Distracted Driving in this era of Connected Vehicle Systems and Increasingly complex computer applications & monitoring…the automotive industry has created a standard evaluation checklist for what a 5-Star Pedestrian, Driver and Vehicle Safety Design Looks Like.
- Side-impact protection
- Whiplash-minimizing seats
- Rigid passenger compartments
- Child occupant category
- Safety assist
- Lane-departure warning
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Pedestrian forward collision warning
- Electronic stability control
- Tire-pressure monitoring
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Rear cross-traffic alerts
- Reversing camera
- GPS navigation system
To go a bit farther the Automotive Industry this year recognized the Alfa Romeo Giulia as number one in occupant protection!
