Whether crowded city streets or quiet country roads, multiple travelers take to these routes daily by very different modes of transportation. All motorists and travelers alike must be alert and aware of not only road conditions but also who they are sharing the streets with. Many of these may include:

  • Cars
  • Bicycles
  • Runners and walkers
  • Motorcycles
  • Farm related equipment
  • Off road vehicles
  • Construction equipment
  • Tractor trailers
  • Amish buggies

Travelers using a slower, less protective and less noticeable mode of transportation may be at a higher risk for life-threatening injuries upon impact with another driver. Lutheran Hospital's verified trauma center reminds all drivers to share the streets and help be responsible for safe travel conditions for all.
