Delaware Office of Highway Safety joins other state safety offices to promote safe and legal pedestrian behavior.
In an obvious effort to desensitize us to the likelihood of a zombie attack, the Delaware Office of Highway Safety has begun a new public safety campaign called “Don’t Join the Walking Dead”.
This story for NBCPhiladelphia.com describes to controversial nature of the program. Is it a fun way to promote traffic safety and awareness, or an insult to the dead and their families?
The Office of Highway Safety joined forces with DelDOT and Delaware State Police to create the “Don’t Join the Walking Dead” pedestrian campaign. Using actors dressed up as zombies, patrolling officers stop residents at recent accident locations to find pedestrians at risk of being involved in a crash. The “at risk” pedestrians include residents who aren’t crossing at marked crosswalks or signaled intersections and people who walk at dusk/night without a flashlight.
