What is Share the Road?
Minnesota’s Share the Road pedestrian safety campaign provides materials, information and resources for anyone looking to improve pedestrian safety in a community, school, county or other areas.
Increasing awareness of pedestrian safety will help reduce pedestrian-vehicle crashes, as well as reduce the fatalities and serious injuries that result from these crashes.
What causes pedestrian-vehicle crashes?
Pedestrians and motorists are equally responsible for pedestrian safety. Motorist behaviors cause about half of all pedestrian-vehicle crashes and pedestrian behaviors cause the other half.
Pedestrians can’t do much to improve a driver's habits, just like drivers can’t do anything about pedestrian behaviors. We all must take responsibility to follow the law, pay attention and share the road.
