Pedestrian Right of Way Tips

To date, our blog topics have dealt with specifically your vehicle. This week’s offering is a start to different driving-related safety messages designed to increase your awareness when driving and improve overall safety for you and those in or around your vehicle when you are driving.

Have you ever heard the statement, “they seem as though they are in a world of their own…?” In today’s world there are plenty of distractions. Cell phones, iPods and PDA’s seem to have extended themselves from convenience items to essentials for life. Unfortunately, they are some of the most distracting items for drivers and pedestrians alike. With all these distractions, many motorists seem to be unaware or forget that pedestrians DO HAVE the right of way in a crosswalk, marked or unmarked. 

As drivers, we must always be alert. If you see a pedestrian in a crosswalk, or waiting to cross the street at a cross walk, you MUST yield the right of way. Unlike video games, you do not get points for running down a pedestrian. But most important is that life does not come with a reset button, although sometimes I wish it did. 

Two things you should always remember behind the wheel are:

  • STAY ALERT and BE SITUATIONALLY AWARE
  • OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS

The Terry Wynter Service Team wants you to remain aware while driving and look for pedestrians. We value more than your business. We value you, our customer. Stay safe!
