SOMETHING THAT IS NOTHING TOBE PROUD OF -- PEDESTRIANDEATHS.

KGUN 9 IS COMMITTED TOKEEPING OUR ROADS SAFE --THAT'S WHY WE'RE BRINGING YOU"OPERATION SAFE ROADS" REPORTS.WE BEGIN -- WITH NINE ON YOURSIDE'S CRAIG SMITH -- WHO TAKESUS INSIDE A CLASS -- DESIGNED TOKEEP PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTSSAFE.THE STREETS CAN BE DANGEROUS,WHETHER YOU GET AROUND ON WHEELSOR ON FOOT.

IN ARIZONA IT'S SODANGEROUS, OUR STATE IS A LEADERIN LIVES LOST---PEDESTRIANLIVES..JEFF HALLUMS/EZ-AZ TRAFFICSCHOOLS:"NUMBER ONE TO ME ISYOU'RE DEAD LAST.JEFF HALLUMS RUNS A COURSEDESIGNED TO KEEP WALKERS ANDCYCLISTS SAFER.THE PIMA ASSOCIATION OFGOVERNMENTS SET UP THE PROGRAM.THE STUDENTS GOT TICKETS FORJAYWALKING OR CYCLINGVIOLATIONS.

COMPLETE THE COURSEAND THE TICKET IS DROPPED.HALLUMS SAYS A LOT OF JAYWALKERSRISK GETTING STOPPEDIN THEIR TRACKS, JUST TO SAVE AFEW STEPS.JEFF HALLUMS/EZ-AZ TRAFFICSCHOOLS: "AND A LOT OF THAT ISIS HUMAN BEHAVIOR, YOU WANT TOTAKE THE EASIEST, SHORTEST ROUTETO YOURDESTINATION.

A LOT OF PEOPLEDON'T REALLY THINK ABOUT THECONSEQUENCE OF TAKING THATACTION, UNTIL THEY HAVE ANOPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A CLASS,LEARN WHAT THE TRUE RISKS ARE,LEARN WAYS THEY CAN MODIFY THEIRBEHAVIOR, SAVE TIME IN OTHERWAYS AND PROTECT THEMSELVES."STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO RECOGNIZEWHEN THEY MAY NOT SEE ANONCOMING CAR OR THE CAR MAY NOTSEE THEM.CRAIG: DRIVERS SOMETIMESCOMPLAIN THAT PEDESTRIANS SIMPLYSURPRISE THEM.

SOMETIMESPEDESTRIANS WILL COME OUT FROMBEHIND AN OBSTRUCTION BUT OFTENTHE PROBLEM IS THEDRIVER'S TUNNEL VISION THATINCREASES THE FASTER THEY GO."JEFF HALLUMS/EZ-AZ TRAFFICSCHOOLS:YOU DRIVE TOO FAST, OURVISION NARROWS, YOU DON'T HAVETHE FIELD OF VIEW.

AND THAT'SSOMETHING THAT PEDESTRIANS NEEDTO BE AWARE OF.

IF THEY'RE ON ABUSYSTREET, WHEN WHERE THERE'STRAFFIC THAT'S DRIVING IT FASTERSPEEDS.

THEY ARE LESS VISIBLE,JUST BY THE NATURE OF SPEED."LIDA ROSE GOT A TICKET FORRUNNING A STOP SIGN ON HER BIKE."IT'S REALLY EASY AS A BICYCLISTTO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVETOFOLLOW ALL THE SAME RULES AS AMOTORIST.

SO THAT'S A BIGDIFFERENCE.

I THINK ON THEPEDESTRIAN SIDE IT'S EASY TOTHINK,I'M JUST GONNA CROSS THE ROADHERE INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY GOINGTOTHE CROSSWALK BUT IT'S IMPORTANTTO GO TO THE CROSSWALK FORSURE."AND THAT LIVING THAT MESSAGECOULD KEEP MORE PEDESTRIANSALIVE.
