As a pedestrian, you know there will be times when motor vehicles are in close proximity to where you are walking. There is nothing wrong with this, as long as you do whatever you can to remain safe. The last thing you want is to take a risk or make a decision that puts you in harm's way.
Getting into a pedestrian accident is dangerous; in fact, many times, it's deadly to those who have been hit. The combination of a vehicle traveling at high speeds with the lack of protection a body has leads to people being at risk of severe injuries and death following these accidents. When they or their families face that reality, it's important that the person at fault is held responsible.
