Despite established traffic laws that protect pedestrians, many motorists may be unaware of the guidelines or fail to use caution when driving near pedestrians. Pedestrians, whether walking, jogging, or sitting along the road, may be at-risk for a range of personal injuries as well as potential fatalities in an accident. Sometimes, roads do not contain designated crosswalks for pedestrians or fail to provide adequate lighting for them, which may contribute to serious pedestrian accidents.
