What are the pedestrian right-of-way laws in California?

With the summer season right around the corner, we will begin seeing an increase in the number of pedestrians in the San Diego area. Kids will be out of school. More people will be taking days off from work and tourism to the area will increase. Let's review the pedestrian laws that are in place in the state of California so you know what to expect either as a pedestrian or a motorist this summer season.

The pain and heartache is considerable after a pedestrian crash

While some of the country has to deal with snow, the weather in San Diego is fairly nice. In fact, some people think that this is great weather for walking around the city. If you are heading out for a stroll, make sure that you are following the applicable safety guidelines and laws that can help you to return home safely.

Plan your steps carefully after a pedestrian crash

Walking is a great way to get fit and stay that way. More than likely, you've never thought of walking as a dangerous activity. Sadly, it is very dangerous if the drivers around you aren't paying attention to you. Pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles have a very high risk of being catastrophically or fatally injured.

Pedestrian safety is everyone's responsibility

Pedestrian safety has to be a priority for pedestrians and motorists because the types of injuries that can result from a car slamming into a person walking can lead to death or permanent disability. There are several things that people must think about when they are trying to make sure that everyone can make it home to their family members at the end of the day.

Pedestrian accidents demand urgent attention

The San Diego area is a very pedestrian-friendly area. This doesn't mean that all motorists watch for pedestrians in the way they should. In fact, some drivers become so distracted that they simply don't see people who are walking, even if they are walking in designated crosswalks. This is a very serious safety hazard to these pedestrians.

How can drivers and pedestrians work together to increase safety?

Because pedestrians and drivers are often in close quarters, it is necessary for both parties to take steps to ensure that the people who are walking remain safe. By working together, it might be possible to prevent some accidents.
