Watch for Me NC

North Carolina, the Triangle area in particular, routinely ranks as one of the most dangerous places for pedestrians. Each year in the Triangle, more than 400 people are hit while walking and 180 are hit while bicycling.

Watch for Me NC is a comprehensive campaign aimed at reducing the number of pedestrians and bicyclists hit and injured in crashes with vehicles. The program is a collaborative effort with state and local transportation agencies.

The campaign consists of safety and educational messages directed toward drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists, and an enforcement effort by area police to crack down on some of the violations of safety laws.

While the Watch for Me NC campaign is ultimately intended to be a statewide effort. The program is currently being piloted in several Triangle communities:

  • Apex
  • Carrboro
  • Cary
  • Chapel Hill
  • Durham
  • Fuquay-Varina
  • Knightdale
  • Morrisville
  • Raleigh
  • Wake Forest
