TxDOT INTRODUCES “WALKING BILLBOARDS” TO INCREASE PEDESTRIAN AWARENESS

March 25, 2021

El Paso, Texas – With pedestrian deaths on the rise, TxDOT is reminding both drivers and pedestrians to stay alert as spring’s warm weather brings more people walking outside for exercise or a change of scenery from working or studying at home.

Drivers and pedestrians have a shared responsibility to watch out for each other. TxDOT will conduct a socially distant outreach campaign in the state’s major cities — in areas with high volumes of pedestrians.
