Look Out Asotin County is a grant funded by the Washington State Traffic Commission. The goal of the Look Out Asotin County educational campaign is to increase community awareness of the need for drivers to yield for walkers and rollers to allow their safe passage on the Bridge and Diagonal Street corridors. These corridors have daily traffic counts between 10,000 and 18,000 vehicles daily with 6 crosswalks in less than one-third of a mile. The majority of accidents that involve pedestrians are a result of inattentive driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and failing to yield.
