From 2013 to 2015, there have been 51 pedestrian-related crashes in Morristown, including one fatal crash. 21% of these crashes were a result of pedestrians jaywalking and 46% of crashes were a result of pedestrians being struck while crossing within a marked crosswalk.
As a community that is home to the Morris County seat, Morristown Medical Center, the Mayo Performing Arts Center, businesses, shopping and restaurants, it is important that both drivers and pedestrians understand their personal responsibilities in creating a safe environment for all road users. TransOptions, the Morristown Police Department, and town officials plan to coordinate the Street Smart efforts throughout the month of April 2016.
