Last year, 133 pedestrians and six bicyclists were killed on Maryland’s roads, with 50 percent of those deaths occurring in the greater Baltimore region. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) will join with officials from the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) and regional transportation and law enforcement agencies to launch a new pedestrian and bicyclist safety campaign to help raise awareness of the road network’s most vulnerable users. The campaign is a collaboration between MDOT, BMC, the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems and local agencies from the City of Baltimore, and Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Howard, Harford, Carroll and Queen Anne’s counties.
