Going for a jog or enjoying a walk around the neighborhood is something many folks do each day. There are many children who cross streets everyday as they head to and from school. It is an activity that we rarely give thought to when it comes to safety as we trust motorist to obey the law and yield to pedestrians. However, the sad fact is that, on average, nearly 5,000 pedestrians are killed in traffic crashes each year and another 76,000 are injured.
Motorists are faced with many more distractions in the car these days. Many drivers are tempted to send a quick text or check social media while driving, believing that it will only take a second. During the short amount of time it takes to type and send a text or check a status, they might miss the crosswalk warning or a stop sign and slam into an innocent person crossing the street. Such an injury causes both physical and emotional damage and can lead to unpaid medical bills, loss of income, and in several cases – the death of a loved one.
