While pedestrians have some responsibilities in trying to stay safe on the road, ultimately there is little they can do if a driver ends up approaching and hitting them. As drivers, always make sure to follow all rules of the road and pay close attention to pedestrians. Make sure to obey all signs at the intersection and make sure that nobody is crossing the street before driving through.
