Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian accidents are avoidable if people are aware and alert enough to follow simple safety measures. When jogging, running, or walking, one should remain beside the street or on the shoulder of the road. Furthermore, wait for the “walk” signal before crossing the intersections. Above all, avoid the use of smartphones and other electronic devices while walking.
