Many communities are becoming more “walkable,” adding paths and traffic-calming measures to keep pedestrians safe; however, there are still many hazards for walkers to be aware of, such as blind intersections and high traffic areas.
We hear a lot about the hazards of distracted driving – texting, emailing, talking and doing other things that take your hands off the wheel, eyes off the road and mind off driving. Distractions also can take a pedestrian’s attention away from his or her surroundings, leading to serious injuries from a fall or stepping into traffic.
Pedestrians must be able to cross streets safely, especially in busy, heavy-traffic areas. Unfortunately, sometimes the traditional, marked crosswalks are not sufficient enough to make crossing safe.More than 40% of pedestrian fatalities take place where no crosswalk is available. Click To Tweet
