How to Reduce Pedestrian Accidents
I’m Ed Smith, a North Highlands personal injury lawyer. With about 6,000 pedestrians dying from accidents involving motor vehicles in 2017, this represents an increase of 11 percent from the previous year. A preliminary study shows that this makes it the most dangerous year for pedestrians in two decades. The good news is that pedestrian deaths fell 11 percent in California. There are safety measures that can be taken by both pedestrians and drivers to help reduce the number of pedestrian accident injuries and fatalities.
