Issue Warning To Pedestrians On Highways Last year, over twice as many pedestrians were killed or injured while walking with traffic as while walking against traffic, according to the AAA Motor Club of Iowa. This needless waste points up the timeliness of the traffic safety poster urging pedestrians to •Walk on Left, Face Traffic' when there are no sidewalks or pedestrian pathways always available. This is the time of the year when people vacation in spots where there are no sidewalks or other aids to help pedestrians walk safely. A Motor Club official urged pedestrians to avoid walking along superhighways or throughways ?.t all times. Parents should teach their children never to walk on a highway unless it is absolutely necessary, to only walk on the left side facing traffic and to get off immediately upon seeing a car coming.
