What Can Be Done in Situations Like These?

 
With the rise of social distancing as a safety measure to slow the spread of COVID-19. More and more people are filling the streets and sidewalks. Ironically, with this, the likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians increases.
 
Coincidentally, distracted drivers and pedestrians ignoring crosswalk signals can be deadly and dangerous. We’d like to remind people to please only cross at marked, well-lit crosswalks to avoid getting yourself in an accident.
 
While car accidents are more common than pedestrian accidents, there is reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
 
Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers says, “Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents, but the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries.”
 
He adds, “Some of the worst pedestrian incidents involve minors because they are sometimes hard to see and they also ride bikes, skateboards, etc. Common locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and street corners.”
