Glendale’s Pedestrian Safety Video Recognized by Communicator Awards

Glendale, CA - Pedestrian safety continues to be a very serious concern for the City of Glendale. The Glendale City Council formed a Pedestrian Safety Task Force comprised of members from the public, Transportation & Parking Commission, Police Department, and Public Works Department to tackle new ways to engage and educate both pedestrians and drivers. One initiative was a video to illustrate the importance of making eye contact with drivers before stepping onto the road. Watch the video here.

GTV6 recently received the Communicator Silver Award of Distinction for this "Look 2 Live" video. The Award of Distinction is presented for projects that exceed industry standards in quality and achievement. The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in communications.

This video was among many steps implemented by the respective City departments. Glendale Police Department volunteers have completed 17 presentations to local community groups, with a large focus on the elderly. Over one thousand senior have attended these meetings with more presentations scheduled in the near future.

The City of Glendale encourages you to share this video’s important message with your loved ones. Distracted pedestrians and distracted driving are a community problem that we can end together. Learn more at d2dglendale.org.
