What You Can Do if You Find Yourself in a Crash
As a pedestrian, make yourself visible and always walk on the sidewalks. Obey traffic laws and be cautious of your surroundings. Ultimately, you can prevent unforeseen accidents and keep yourself and others safe on the road.
Pedestrians have the right of way at any crosswalk or intersection. Therefore, it’s a driver’s responsibility to yield and be prepared to stop.
