New Haven Pedestrian Accidents: Keep Yourself Safe

With pedestrian accidents on the rise,  Connecticut law sometimes gives motorist and cyclists the right-of-way; this means that if a pedestrian is attempting to cross the street and he or she is not in a crosswalk, he or she must first let motorists and cyclist pass. Yesterday, however, a New Haven man was killed when he was struck by a car downtown. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should all be aware of one another when sharing Connecticut roadways.

Here are a few ways to avoid a pedestrian accident for everyone that shares the road:

  1. Follow road signs and signals.
  2. Obey traffic laws.
  3. Stay alert.
  4. Yield as needed.
