Risk of Pedestrian Accidents in Indianapolis

April 27, 2015 | Blog

We all want to get out and enjoy the warmer weather. Unfortunately, along with warm weather the danger of being hit by a car increases. Four people were injured in less than a week recently in Indianapolis, the latest a young school girl as she was getting out of a car to get onto her school bus. Drivers of vehicles need to be especially careful because people are not as easy to see as other vehicles. And, it goes without saying that if a person is hit they are more likely to be seriously injured than someone whose body is protected inside a vehicle. So please be on the lookout for pedestrians when you are driving. Be especially careful around school buses and other public transportation. Always look both ways turning right on a red light, and be especially cautious when driving at dusk and night.
