Law enforcement agencies are seeing an increase in pedestrian deaths across the state.
In Franklin County last year, 30 percent of fatal traffic crashes involved pedestrians.
In 2010, pedestrian fatalities increased nearly 10 percent across the state.
Lt. Gary Lewis of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that there were now more ways for pedestrians to become distracted.
"We know that many of them are distracted. We're seeing they're also traveling in areas that are low lit. They're also traveling against traffic," Lewis said.
The highway patrol is partnering with the Duke and Duchess Shoppe to provide neon green bags with purchases in an attempt to make pedestrians more visible.
