By: Tim Wertner, Senior Vice President U.S. Operations at FedEx Express
I was honored to walk alongside Torine Creppy, the President of Safe Kids Worldwide, as we led more than 1,200 kids and adults in our FedEx and Safe Kids Walk This Way event, promoting pedestrian safety. Dozens of FedEx volunteers helped ensure kids were safe walkers.
Every hour of every day, a teen pedestrian is killed or injured in the U.S.
Washington, D.C., October 10, 2014 /3BL Media/ – New research released today from Safe Kids Worldwide revealed alarming news: 40 percent of teens have been hit or nearly hit by a car, bike or motorcycle while walking.
The report, “Teens on the Move” made possible with support from FedEx®, explores walking behaviors of 1,040 teens ages 13 to 19.
