Pedestrians are required to exercise some caution to ensure that they are safe on the roadways and are not involved in an injury or deadly accident
Some of the practices include looking both ways before crossing the road. This is to watch out for oncoming vehicles that may travel at a high rate of speed.
Making eye contact with the driver of the oncoming vehicle to ensure that they see you too and hence they can be able to yield.
Ensure that the driver is slowing down before entering a crosswalk. Establishing eye contact with driver will not guarantee that they will stop for you.
Exercise care while crossing at an intersection. Avoid mid-block crossing and crossing between two parked vehicles.
Don’t cross a crosswalk at night while wearing dark clothing as the drivers may not be able to see you.
Pedestrians should also be predictable. Do not suddenly jump into the roadway or decide at the last minute to beat a vehicle as you may be struck.
Be careful while walking across parking lots. The lot should be viewed as a normal roadway.
