S.T.O.P.S.

The Town of Front Royal has kicked off their new pedestrian safety campaign “STOPS” Smart Towns Observe Pedestrian Safety.

We have been locally impacted with pedestrian fatalities, and nationally over 5,000 pedestrians are killed in the United States each year. Experts say many of these crashes are due to unsafe behaviors by both pedestrians and drivers. To address the problem, the Town of Front Royal is launching the STOPS Campaign to raise awareness about pedestrian safety.

The campaign is targeted towards pedestrians, motorists and bicyclists and includes information about devices designed to enhance pedestrian safety; such as important points for use of crosswalks, pedestrian warning signs, pedestrian signal indications and reflective materials for nighttime visibility.

The campaign focuses on three main areas: public education, infrastructure improvements and enforcement to provide a safe environment for all users of the road. The Town’s goal is ZERO fatalities.
