As temperatures warm up, people are enjoying the weather by spending more time outdoors. No matter how you travel to your destination, the Governors’ Highway Safety Association, and the Texas Department of Transportation, along with the City of Lockhart, urge you to be mindful of both drivers and pedestrians.
In its most recent report, the GHSA saw a 20-percent increase in pedestrian deaths nationwide for the first six months of 2020. Seven states, including Texas, accounted for over half of those deaths. A trend the group found concerning, especially with fewer drivers out on the roads due to COVID-19.
TxDOT has also seen an increase in pedestrian fatalities. While data from last year has not been finalized, between 2015 and 2019, the state agency reported 3,150 pedestrian deaths. A very small fraction of that number is in Lockhart, but you are still encouraged to exercise caution while traveling.
In response to these numbers, Lockhart Police steps up traffic enforcement. Officers are out on patrol focusing on issues that cause collisions, like distracted driving and DWIs, to help reduce these incidents within city limits.
