How to Prevent A Pedestrian Accident

Unfortunately, fatal pedestrian accidents are becoming more common each year. If you have to walk in the street, one should walk against the road rather than with the flow of traffic. One might think that it would be more dangerous to walk against the flow while walking. However, by walking against the flow you are better able to see vehicles coming at you and allow you to move out of the way if necessary. Pedestrian accidents can be prevented in some cases. The CDC provided a list to help prevent a pedestrian accident from occurring and recommends that pedestrians:

  • Wear bright and reflective clothing to increase visibility
  • Carry a flash light or blinking runners/walker light
  • Cross at designated crosswalk locations
  • Avoid Jay-walking
  • Use the available sidewalks

While many of these might seem like common sense, they are also commonly not used and contribute to pedestrian accidents each year. By following these tips it may decrease your likelihood of being involved in a fatal pedestrian accident.
