Safety is a critical aspect of a walkable community. One component of the WalkWays initiative involves analysis of pedestrian crashes, walkability safety audits in high crash areas, and the development of countermeasures to prevent them.
In November 2016, WalkWays unveiled a public safety education campaign, Tired Faces. The ads target people both walking and driving, and are intended to raise awareness, provide education and promote behavioral change.
Social media graphics are available below. Other campaign components include bus tail ads, yard signs, a brochure and window clings for businesses and community spaces.
We invite organizations and individuals to share these safety messages through their own networks and channels. To request materials, please email info@IndyWalkWays.org or call 317-622-4820.
