“We don’t want people speeding, we don’t want people getting hurt or injured. The more the weather gets nicer, the more people come out. So we want to make sure that people are paying attention, both the drivers of the vehicles and the pedestrians themselves as they’re walking,” said Allegheny County Police Sergeant John Robb.

This event wraps up a week-long effort by local departments to raise awareness for pedestrian traffic laws.
