There are plenty of ways to maximize your safety on the road. Some noteworthy tips include keeping a steady and safe speed when traveling. It’s also a good practice to leave enough road space behind the driver in front of you and paying attention to your surrounding.
While car accidents are far more common than pedestrian accidents, there is still reason to be wary when traveling on foot.
“Pedestrian accidents do not occur as much as motor vehicle accidents. But the pedestrian accidents tend to include more serious injuries,” says Tyler Toomey, a practicing attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
