“Lives Shatter on Impact” Street Smart Safety Campaign Exhibit at Union Station
From April 18 to 24, 2021, there was a “Lives Shatter on Impact” exhibit in the Main Hall of Union Station. Part of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Street Smart Safety Campaign, the objective of “Lives Shatter on Impact” was to educate passersby and remind drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists about the importance of watching out for each other. The display shared heartfelt testimonials from area residents whose lives have been upended when they or their loved ones have been struck by drivers. The exhibit featured an educational wall with written stories and photographs, as well as a large video screen showing short films and photos from across the region.
