Preventing Pedestrian Accidents in Phoenix
The best way to avoid becoming a statistic and prevent a pedestrian accident is to follow all Phoenix traffic laws. Yes, traffic laws apply to everyone, even if you’re not in a motor vehicle.
Some traffic laws to be aware of in Phoenix include the following,
- Pedestrians always have the right of way in the crosswalk. All vehicles must yield to pedestrians.
- When a pedestrian has a yield sign, they have the right of way. All vehicles must come to a complete stop until the pedestrian is across the street.
- Pedestrians have the right to cross intersections, even when there isn’t a crosswalk. However, pedestrians must obey all traffic signals and signs. This also applies to vehicles.
Even though you have rights as a pedestrian, especially in crosswalks, this doesn’t mean not paying attention to oncoming traffic. Not all drivers obey traffic laws or yield to pedestrians. Sometimes, drivers may not notice a pedestrian waiting to cross. Making eye contact with drivers is always recommended to ensure they see you.
Accidents involving vehicles are the most common type of pedestrian accident, but it’s not the only way you can sustain injuries. Slips and falls on uneven Phoenix sidewalks can occur. Pedestrians can also be involved in an accident at one of the city’s numerous attractions. Knowing who is responsible for your accident is paramount in a personal injury case, and the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan may be able to help.
