Twenty-two pedestrians died after being hit by cars in Baltimore County in 2013 - that's a five year high, and officials say the county is on pace to match it this year. Trying to lower those numbers, county officials Thursday launched a "Heads Up! Walk Safe" campaign, urging pedestrians to obey traffic laws and be more cognizant of their surroundings while walking and biking. Pedestrians are at fault in 80 percent of crashes, officials said. "This past year, 2013, we had more fatal pedestrian crashes in Baltimore County than in the five years prior," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz during a news conference.
