While nationally the number of pedestrian deaths is down slightly from 2016 according to the National Highway Safety Administration, still nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in 2017 when hit by cars.
So, what can drivers do to make sure they don't end up hitting a pedestrian during this time of year?
Here are 7 tips to follow to ensure everyone, those walking or driving, stays safe on the road this fall:

With school coming back in session, kids will be getting off and on buses in neighborhoods, crossing in school zones, or walking or riding bikes to school. If you watch out for them, you'll help ensure they arrive to school safely.
