Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, always exercise safety. Accidents happen when we least expect them, which is why we should always be leery of our surroundings and never assume anyone sees us. Safety should be a top concern for anyone on the road. Always be vigilant and defensive in order to decrease the dangers of traffic collisions.
