U.Va. Community Relations will host HOOS Crossing, a crosswalk safety campaign, on Tuesday, Oct. 29, through Friday, Nov. 1, from noon to 2 p.m. The event, which will be held at crosswalk locations adjacent to the Corner district along University Avenue, aims to encourage safe pedestrian crossing at high-traffic areas.
During the campaign, members of U.Va.ís Student Council and Police Department, Dean of Students Allen Groves, Cavman, Dean of Admissions Jeannine Lalonde (Dean J), representatives from the Corner Business Association, and student athletes will join forces to distribute flyers, coupons, and buttons to pedestrians.
The campaign will heighten awareness of the risks of dangerous crossing and promote safer and more courteous crossing techniques.
