School is in session across the country. That means more drivers and pedestrians of all ages are on the road and on the sidewalks. With more students, parents and commuters out and about, there can be an increase of fatal pedestrian accidents in New Jersey.
Pedestrian injuries can be extremely severe. Whether you are strolling near your home, crossing a major roadway or in a busy parking lot, dangerous and distracted drivers are probably on the road. Additionally, the roads themselves may be unsafe – potholes and hazardous street conditions can also cause harm to pedestrians. There is also the chance that drivers will not see you while you are exercising—walking, running or bicycling.
