Pedestrian safety is so important, but often overlooked. On the busy streets of Metro Atlanta, everyone worries about car wrecks, yet constantly ignore pedestrian dangers. All car accidents don't just involve other cars. Pedestrians are at risk all the time from being hit by a vehicle or injured from unsafe conditions around them. Here are some tips to help reduce your risk of injury as a pedestrian.
1. Always Use Crosswalks:
Never cross in the middle of the road. Only cross the street using crosswalks. If the intersection has pedestrian crosswalk signs, follow them strictly.
2. Make Eye Contact:
If you aren't 100% positive a car sees you crossing the street or in a parking lot, make eye contact with them. Be sure the driver knows you are there and your proximity to their vehicle.
3. Pay Attention To Your Surroundings:
Don't stare down at your phone, listen to loud music with earphones or be distracted by other people nearby. Know who and what is around you at all times.
4. Wear Bright, Reflective Clothing At Night:
Nighttime can be very dangerous for pedestrians. Be sure that you are as visible as possible when walking.
