Ann Arbor is an incredibly walkable city. From its downtown streets to the roads around the University of Michigan, you are likely to see pedestrians on and near streets across town at all hours of the day and night. In fact, even some of the city’s most popular hiking and biking trailsare immediately adjacent to busy city streets.
While this overlap makes Ann Arbor a very active and fun city, it unfortunately exposes pedestrians to a very real threat: dangerous drivers. Although drivers are supposed to do everything possible to keep pedestrians safe while they are behind the wheel, the reality is that far too many pedestrians are injured and killed every year after being struck by careless, distracted, and aggressive drivers in Michigan.
