So, officals begin attacking the problem. Columbia police Chief Randy Scott has turned more of his departments focus onto pedestrian safety; USC transportation director along with campus police chief Chris Wuchenich created a working group to address safety issues. Statewide, highway patrol troopers lauched their own pedestrian safety effort back in January. Just last week, Columbia enacted a ban on texting while driving aiming to keep those who are walking safe from distracted drivers.

The issue remains; pedestrians need to watch where they are going, be aware of whats going on around them, and obey all traffic laws. Motorists also have a responsibility to watch out for pedestrians and keep distractions in the car to a minimum, and obey traffic laws. Being aware and undistracted will help reduce the number of pedestrian deaths in South Carolina.
