SafeAcross is a pedestrian safety initiative that pairs specialty signage with playful educational messages to train drivers to recognize crosswalks and yield for pedestrians. The various elements of SafeAcross aim to normalize courteous behavior and promote pedestrian-friendly communities.

How It Started
Mr. Walker and the SafeAcross program were born in Springfield, Missouri, as SGF Yields, a city-wide program launched with support from the Missouri Department of Transportation to help combat a growing number of pedestrian-involved crashes on Springfield streets. Since 2017, driver compliance in Springfield has risen from 25% to 50%.
