Avoiding Connecticut Pedestrian Accidents This Summer
It is seemingly far too often that when we turn on the news or read an online news source we are seeing a report of a Connecticut pedestrian accident and sometimes these reports include deaths. Recently a three year-old toddler was killed after being struck by a car and a Wilton man was struck walking in his neighborhood. As a pedestrian, here are a few ways to avoid an accident:
- Walk in well-lit areas.
- Use crosswalks.
- Use sidewalks.
- Walk distraction-free.
There are other factors, outside of pedestrian actions, that can cause an accident including inexperienced drivers, drunk/distracted/drowsy drivers, excessive speeds, illegal turns, improper driving in a school area, and certain roadway conditions.
