Pedestrian Safety Initiative In Kane County
Pedestrian accidents are notable in that they often lead to a range of serious injuries to those who have been hit by a vehicle. As seen in posts on this site which summarize Kane County pedestrian accidents, many of these accidents either lead to serious accident injuries, including head injuries, and a substantial percentage of the injuries lead to fatalities.
There are various ways that pedestrian safety can be enhanced. In some instances, such improvements to pedestrian safety happen after a pedestrian accident leads to serious injuries or a fatality to the person who has been hit by a vehicle. Among these measures are the installation of cross walks, cross walks with flashing beacons, cross walk signs and other measures.
The October 26, 2017 Kane County Connects post titled “Cross Walk Warning System to Begin Installation on Bliss Road at the Virgil Gilman Trail This Week” discusses such an installation. Two excerpts from the post:
Starting the week of Oct. 23, crews will be working on the installation of a pedestrian activated cross walk warning system on Bliss Road at the Virgil Gilman Trail crossing located just south of May Road.
“We are doing this improvement to add visibility for the trail crossing at Bliss Road, which will result in a safer crossing,” Kane County Division of Transportation’s Heidi Files said.
