Injured in Mountain Vista Drive Crash
With the rise of social distancing as a safety measure to slow the spread of COVID-19, walking outside has increased in commonality.
As a result, the likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians increases.
A pedestrian accident is when a vehicle struck a person on foot.
These accidents are sometimes caused by pedestrians ignoring crosswalk signals and difficult weather conditions.
Luckily, we can prevent pedestrian accidents.
So, here are some of the things we can do to avoid pedestrian accidents:
– Avoid dangerous behaviors: always walk on the sidewalk (no jaywalking), stay sober, and make eye contact with drivers – don’t assume the driver can see you.
– Stay off your phones, talking and especially texting distracts you from paying attention to your surroundings.
– Look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
