Pedestrian Injuries
It is estimated that a pedestrian is killed in a traffic crash every 113 minutes and injured every eight minutes. Among those particularly vulnerable are children and the elderly. Many times these accidents happen in parking lots, when cars back out of parking spaces and do not see people crossing behind them. Other times pedestrians are struck while they are in crosswalks by drivers who do not see them or who are distracted by cell phones or other activities. 

Pedestrians need to be on alert

It is commonly accepted that drivers of automobiles have a legal responsibility to be on the alert for pedestrians so as not to cause injury. Because of this, many pedestrians fail to pay attention to cars coming their way, and simply assume that the car will stop for them. This is a dangerous attitude and one that has caused many injuries to pedestrians who are not being vigilant.

Pedestrians should exercise the same care and caution that the drivers of cars are expected to exercise. Pedestrians should look both ways in a crosswalk, even when the crossing light is in their favor. When passing by cars in a parking lot, pedestrians should notice whether the car is on, and keep an eye out to see if the car begins to move. It is not a good idea to simply assume that car drivers will be vigilant or that they will obey the law at all times. 

Safety Precautions for Pedestrians

Pedestrians must take extra caution when they are exposed to construction or automobile traffic. It is especially mportant to teach children good safety procedures when they are walking near a road, crossing a road, passing a construction site or even just walking in a parking lot. In short, when people are out on the street they should always be aware of their surroundings and never simply trust that drivers and others in control of heavy machinery will be vigilant and look out for their safety.
