Kids’ perspective on safe walkability – Safe Kids, USA

“I took this picture because of a broken sidewalk. You should feel safe so you won’t trip and fall and break a bone. I didn’t feel very safe. They should make new sidewalks to cover up the broken ones.” Brooke, age 9, Spartanburg, South Carolina

“First, the sidewalk was like rising up and someone could slip. Next, it was trashed with garbage and tires. With gas prices rising, people are going to want to walk and they shouldn’t have to walk over this.” Kari, age 13, Detroit, Michigan

“I chose this picture because it is safe for pedestrians. There is a sidewalk and stop signals, you should always walk on crosswalks. I felt safe walking in this environment.” Rachel, age 11, Tacoma, Washington
