CINCINNATI, Oh. (October 10, 2019) – As anticipation builds for the 2019 Blink Cincinnati Festival, AAA and the Hamilton County Safe Communities Coalition are reminding pedestrians to stay safe while experiencing the multi-block light show regional event.
“With millions expected to participate in the four-day experience, it is critical that the public remembers safety first,” says Jenifer Moore, AAA spokeswoman. “We are encouraging all residents and visitors to follow the traffic advisories developed by Blink organizers and public safety officials.”
There were approximately 6,227 pedestrian fatalities nationally in 2018—the highest number in nearly three decades, according to the Governors Highway Safety (GHSA) Association. Additionally, pedestrians now account for approximately 16 percent of all motor vehicle deaths, compared with 11 percent just a few years ago.
