Keep Yourself Safe From Pedestrian Accidents

In today’s current state of affairs, more individuals are walking as a new way to escape home for a while.

As a result, pedestrian accidents have also spiked in popularity, so has the risk of pedestrian accidents. 

Pedestrian accidents are incidents in which someone walking or crossing a road is injured by a vehicle striking them.

Surely, we can avoid pedestrian accidents.

A common cause of these unfortunate incidents includes drivers speeding. Motorists who speed do not have enough reaction time to stop or yield for pedestrians who have the right of way.
