End The Streak

Dec. 13, 2022

City of Belton Mayor Wayne Carpenter is the latest public official to echo TxDOT Waco District’s call to action: let’s End the Streak. December is one of the darker months of the year – in general, pedestrian traffic deaths are higher during the darker months of fall and winter.

In front of the Bell County Courthouse, Belton Mayor Carpenter urged Texans to be more aware of bike-riders and pedestrians on roadways. Mayor Carpenter joins Fort Hood Garrison Commander Chad Foster, Waco Mayor Dillon Meek, and Temple Mayor Tim Davis in the call to end daily deaths on Texas roads.

Pedestrian traffic fatalities increased by 15% in Texas in 2021. The state saw 5,366 traffic crashes involving pedestrians, resulting in 841 fatalities and 1,470 serious injuries.
