“Lives Shatter on Impact” Street Smart Safety Campaign Exhibit 2

November 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am – November 21, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Union Station Main Hall

In April 2021, there was a “Lives Shatter on Impact” exhibit in the Main Hall of Union Station. If you were unable to see it then, you have another chance. The exhibit will be returning to the Main Hall from November 15 to 21, 2021 and, this time, the content will be available in English and Spanish.

Part of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Street Smart Safety Campaign, the objective of “Lives Shatter on Impact” is to educate passersby and remind drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists about the importance of watching out for each other. The display shares heartfelt testimonials from area residents whose lives have been upended when they or their loved ones have been struck by drivers. The exhibit features an educational wall with written stories and photographs, as well as a TV showing short films and photos from across the region.

Accompanying the “Lives Shatter on Impact” exhibit will be a chalkboard for people to pay tribute to crash victims throughout the week leading up to the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on November 21st. For this collaborative effort with DC Families for Safe Streets, materials will be available for individuals to write a message or a name and/or post a photo to honor a lost loved one’s memory.
