What You Can Do if You Find Yourself in a Crash
When driving behind the wheel, it is important to always be on the lookout for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. 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.
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, being wary when traveling on foot is important.
Moreover, locations for these pedestrian incidents include shopping center entrances and intersections.
