How To Get Away 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.

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 is 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.

– Avoid dangerous behaviors: always walk on the sidewalk (no jaywalking), stay sober, and make eye contact with drivers, don’t assume the driver can see you.

– Look before you step: cross streets at marked crosswalks/intersections, obey traffic signals, and watch for turning vehicles.
