Alert Today Alive Tomorrow
A recent feature article published in the Orlando Sentinel provided some insight as to why Central Florida is either the most dangerous place for pedestrians in the country, or the second-most dangerous, depending on how you view the data. The article reinforced what James O. Cunningham and other Orlando personal injury lawyers have been saying for years — that city officials, the law enforcement community and Floridians need to step up efforts to make area roadways safer for non-motorized traffic.
James O. Cunningham and other Orlando pedestrian accident lawyers applaud any efforts to make our area safer for pedestrians, including outside-the-box thinking like the state’s latest campaign. The Department of Transportation’s latest method may be unorthodox, but, as long as it works, that’s all that matters. The DoT recently sponsored a Toyota Camry racecar driven by Joe Nemechek, who drove 120 laps in a race at Daytona International Speedway with his number 87 car sporting the agency’s pedestrian-safety motto, "Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow."
