Unfortunately, pedestrians are at a disadvantage when it comes to personal safety on the streets of Houston. Motorists frequently fail to see pedestrians on or alongside busy roads, and it only takes a second for a serious accident to occur.
Pedestrian accidents are most likely to occur when:
- Carless drivers ignore the presence of pedestrians in pedestrian-friendly areas such as parking lots or school zones;
- Pedestrians cross the street without the aid of a signal or crosswalk;
- Motorists fail to turn on their headlights at night; and
- Drivers fail to yield the right-of-way at intersections.
