Provo Police asks drivers for awareness of pedestrians crossing



Provo, UT- Crosswalks present danger as drivers are not looking out for pedestrians while driving and the number of accidents escalates rapidly.

In the past year, there were 64 accidents involving pedestrians and many of them were injured while crossing the street at crosswalks.

According to Provo Police, only one out of every 10 people survive when hit by a driver going 40 miles an hour. Officers are reminding Utah residents to stay alert in intersections, crosswalks, school zones and other busy areas.
