Make sure you are taking safety precautions while walking

Safety when you are out and about in San Diego is a priority for anyone who is walking around the metro area. While there are crosswalks and sidewalks, there isn't any guarantee that you won't be struck by a vehicle.

It is imperative that you take the time to make sure that you are being as safe as you can when you are walking. Wearing the right gear is the first thing that you can do that might help you here. If you are walking at night or when it isn't sunny out, you need to wear reflective clothing that can alert drivers that you are out. You shouldn't wear any dark clothing while you are walking because this can make it difficult for drivers to see you.

When you are walking, make sure that you are following applicable traffic laws. This includes not crossing the street outside of crosswalks or away from intersections if there aren't crosswalks.

You should also use common sense when you walk. If you see a car barreling toward you, don't try to beat that vehicle. Even though the car is supposed to stop if you are at an intersection or crosswalk, there is a chance the driver might not be able to or might not even try.

Before you go out walking, make a plan for you will do if you are struck by a vehicle. This isn't pleasant to think about, but you might not be able to think clearly if an accident does happen. Making a plan ahead of time can help you out considerably.
