What to Do in Case of Road Accident
Although pedestrian accidents are becoming more common, there are ways to avoid the likelihood of being involved in one. For instance, if you’re an avid walker, it may benefit you to purchase brightly colored attire, that way you make yourself more visible to motorists around you.
As a driver, looking out for pedestrians can be as simple as taking cues you see on the road. If a small light shines ahead of you on a residential street at night, it is safe to assume that you are sharing the road with a pedestrian who is carrying a flashlight. Do not, however, assume they are on the sidewalk, and make sure to tread with caution.
