Walking is a great way to get around. Walking is not only healthy, it's also good for the environment. However, it is important to exercise safety and follow pedestrian laws when walking near roadways in order to avoid pedestrian accidents and injuries.  

Crossing the Road 

When crossing the road, it is important to cross at a designated crosswalk and to obey traffic signals when applicable. Even when you have the right of way, you should always watch for inattentive or careless motorists to avoid a pedestrian accident. 

Walking on the Road 

Of course, walking on a sidewalk is safest, but when you are on a road without sidewalks, you should always walk on the side facing traffic so you can see any vehicles coming towards you. 

Walking at Night 

When walking at night, you can increase your visibility to passing motorists by wearing reflective clothing such as a vest, or carrying a flashlight. 

Contact an Atlanta Pedestrian Accident Attorney 

While following these safety tips can reduce your risks, a pedestrian accident can still occur as the result of a motorist's negligence or carelessness. If you suffered an injury, an Atlanta pedestrian accident attorney can help you.
