Hastings & Hastings Speaks Out on Pedestrian Safety

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Phoenix, AZ - Feb 11, 2016 - On average, some 4,000 individuals are killed each year in pedestrian accidents near roadways. Walking can be particularly dangerous for children ages 5-19 as unintentional pedestrian injuries are the fifth leading cause of injury-related death for that age group. Conversely, adults above the age of 65 account for 20 percent of pedestrian deaths. To Hastings & Hastings this clearly illustrates that pedestrians are at risk if they do not follow proper safety protocols.

Pedestrians are most at risk when traveling at night. To minimize the danger Hastings & Hastings advises them to maximize their visibility. This means wearing bright, reflective clothing and staying  in well-lit areas. As an additional precaution, pedestrians should carry a flashlight. Further, pedestrians should never cross the street at night except in designated crossing areas. Finally, Hastings & Hastings notes, it is important that pedestrians stick to the sidewalk.
