Our lovely weather and beautiful streets make Lancaster a pedestrian’s dream. Some people walk for fresh air, exercise, because they are environmentally conscious, or simply because it’s convenient to walk and not worry about finding parking or paying meters. A beautiful walk outside, however, can take a turn for the worse if you’re involved in a pedestrian accident.
Pedestrians are especially vulnerable because they have less protection than almost anyone else on the road. Motor vehicles have a vehicle that surrounds them with airbags and seatbelts inside. Bicyclists and scooters riders wear (or should wear) helmets and possibly other safety gear, while pedestrians generally have nothing more than the clothes they are wearing to protect them in an accident.
There are some safety measures that pedestrians can take to try to avoid being involved in an accident. See the following recommendations for pedestrian safety:
