County residents can help make their communities safer by keeping a watchful eye on the roads.
The Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) is encouraging community members to travel safely.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians have common rights and duties, according to a release.
Commuters are reminded to consider how they can keep themselves and others safe when hitting the road.
Last year, more than 100 pedestrians and more than 10 bike riders died in Virginia.
More than 600 cyclists and at least 1,500 pedestrians were injured, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles Highway Safety Office.
“By working together, we can help reduce traffic crashes involving pedestrians and bicyclists, thus making our County a safer one in which to live, work and play,” a release stated.
To learn more information, call the department’s Traffic Unit at 703-792-7254, or visit the Pedestrian Safety web page.
