Anne Arundel isn’t the only Maryland locale getting serious about pedestrian safety. October is Pedestrian Safety Month, and the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance, in conjunction with the Department of Transportation, has launched a new website and a video contest to encourage safe walking habits.
