Mayor Walsh urges drivers to be vigilant to increase pedestrian safety

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh addressed safety on the streets on Thursday. 

Walsh is encouraging people to partner with the city to help keep people safe while they are out and about. 

"Since the beginning of 2016, four people in the city have died after being hit by a car while walking, three people were senior citizens, this is unacceptable and we need to do more to assure safety in our city," Walsh said. 

Walsh urged people who drive, walk and bicycle in the city to stay safe by paying attention to the rules of the road and being aware of others who are also on local streets.
