More stringent laws about vehicle safety and driver behavior have succeeded in reducing the number of fatalities in car crashes, but the number of people killed in pedestrian accidents has actually increased in recent years. Pedestrians have a great responsibility in staying attentive at all times and following simple rules such as crossing the road only at the designated crosswalks, but accidents still can occur when they act carelessly, texting or talking on their cell phone or listening to music while walking. Always be as alert and aware as possible when walking in our South Florida streets, as a combination of factors – including everything from motorist negligence and ignorance to poor road design that fails to fail to take into consideration pedestrian safety – can often lead to serious or even fatal pedestrian accidents.
