Drivers and pedestrians need to be proactive about avoiding fatal accidents. It’s important to educate and enforce safety guidelines to prevent these tragedies from occurring. Here are a few safe driving and pedestrian tips, according to the State Patrol.
Drive with caution and be aware of your surroundings.
Reduce your speed and increase your following distance.
Be sure that everyone in your vehicle is properly restrained.
Don’t drink and drive.
If you encounter a dangerous driver, call 911.
Wear appropriate, visible clothing.
Be aware of vehicles that are approaching you from both the front and rear.
Look both directions before crossing traffic and try to cross at a marked cross walk.
Don’t ever assume that just because you can see the car, the driver can see you.
