More than 50 banners will hang from light poles above Brand Boulevard as part of a month-long campaign to remind motorists about the dangers of distracted driving as well as leaving children, pets and seniors in a car on a hot day.
The City of Glendale, CA has seen a spike in pedestrian mishaps in the last several years. As this public safety campaign tries to highlight, many of these incidents are the result of people being distracted by cell phones and other electronic devices. It only takes a split second to take your eyes off the road and run over a person in the street. SLOW DOWN and keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road!
