Last year the Safe Kids Louisville coalition, led by Norton Children’s Hospital, participated in a national study on distracted pedestrians. Four Jefferson County public schools were participants in the study. The results showed that 1 in 8 middle school students and 1 in 5 high school students walk distracted by phones or ear buds. Teens often are unaware of their surroundings and imminent danger because of distractions. Teen pedestrian injuries, unlike any other age group, have gone up 35 percent over the past several years. Safe Kids Louisville is committed to educating students on pedestrian safety practices to help reduce injuries.
