While the dangers of vehicles are clear when we are in one, vehicles pose an even greater threat to pedestrians. According to the Center for Disease Control, every 24 hours,460 people are treated in emergency rooms for traffic-related pedestrian injuries. Also, every two hours, a pedestrian will die from such injuries. Given these frightening statistics, it is important to keep safe and follow safe practices as a pedestrian. Safe practices include wearing reflective clothing at night and making sure to cross safely at a crosswalk.
