Glenarden is faced with potential pedestrian fatalities on several roads that are not pedestrian-friendly. Mayor Estes has continued conversations with the State Highway Administration to help make Highway 704 safer for pedestrian crossings. Additional safety practices are also being planned by Mayor Estes, in communities that are experiencing high levels of vehicular traffic and speeds above residential speed limits.
In Prince George’s and Montgomery counties, pedestrian deaths are on the rise. We plugged fatalities from just this year so far into a map to get an expansive look at where people have died while walking.
You can check out the data we collected from both counties’ Vision Zero data, along with additional information from local police reports and press releases. Click here to view the map for more information.
