Radio Public Service Announcements

The following radio PSAs were developed for the Pedestrian Safety Campaign and are included in

Good Driver :30

Download MP3 (630 Kb)

Sounds of cars zooming by and other road noise. Then a young man's voice. He sounds sincere.
"I'm a good driver. I look for cars. I pay attention." Sound of tires screeching, a young girl's scream,
and shattering windshield. Then silence. Music becomes more somber. The driver is clearly emotional
as he says: "I should have seen the little girl in the crosswalk."

Narrator: "Please, look for pedestrians. Stop for them. Think of the impact you can make. A message
from the Federal Highway Administration."

Young Girl :30

Sounds of traffic zooming by. Above the noise, a young girl's voice. She is clearly upset. "Why was
that driver in such a hurry? He was looking for other cars as he turned the corner. He wasn't looking
for my mom in the crosswalk." Sound of tires screeching, a scream, and shattering windshield. Then
silence. Music becomes more somber. Full of anguish, the girl continues, "I really miss her. . ."

Narrator: "Please, look for pedestrians. Stop for them. Think of the impact you can make. A message
from the Federal Highway Administration."

Young Girl-Multiple Threat :30

Download MP3 (630 Kb)

Sounds of traffic zooming by. Above the noise, a young girl's voice. She is clearly upset. "Why
was that driver in such a hurry? He saw the car in the other lane stop and he decided to go around
it. He wasn't looking for my mom in the crosswalk." Sound of tires screeching, a scream, and
shattering windshield. Then silence. Music becomes more somber. "I really miss her. . ."

Narrator: "Please, look for pedestrians. When a car stops in front of you, slow down and be prepared
to stop. Someone may be crossing the street. Think of the impact you can make. A message from
the Federal Highway Administration."

Distracted Teen :30

Sounds of traffic zooming by then a young male voice. "We were just driving to school. Yeah, the
music was loud and we were all talking. I thought I had everything under control." Sound of tires
screeching, a scream, and shattering windshield. The young male continues, clearly emotional.
"Until I hit that kid in the crosswalk."

Narrator: "Please, look for pedestrians. Stop for them. Think of the impact you can make. A message
from the Federal Highway Administration."

Instant :30

A young mom's voice, starts out sweet and turns very emotional. "In an instant, my son could make
anyone smile. In an instant, he was gone. The driver was looking for other cars, but he didn't watch
out for my son crossing the street. Imagine, in the time it takes to stop for someone in the crosswalk,
you could save a life… or change yours forever."

Narrator: "A message from the Federal Highway Administration."

Share the Road :15

Sounds of several cars rushing by, then a young woman's voice. "I walk and you drive. So let's
make a deal. I'll watch for you-and cross the street safely. You watch for me-and stop. Think
of the impact we can make."

Narrator: "A message from the Federal Highway Administration."
