Pedestrian accidents are incidents in which someone walking or crossing a road is injured by a vehicle striking them.
Pedestrian accidents more often than not can be avoided.
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.
Especially now, with roadways emptier than ever across the world, drivers disobeying the speed limit are at an all-time high. Thus, pedestrian safety is at an all-time low.
Meanwhile, here are some things that we can do to avoid such accidents.
– Always avoid dangerous behaviors: walk on the sidewalk, stay sober, and make eye contact with drivers, don’t assume the driver can see you.
– Additionally, look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
