Tips for Preventing Pedestrian Accidents and Injuries

    While the NYPD and other safety advocates work to prevent left-turn accidents, it’s important for pedestrians to learn more about staying safe while walking in urban areas. Here are some tips to help pedestrians avoid a collision with a motor vehicle:

    • Always look left, right, and then left again before you cross a street
    • Try to make eye contact with drivers before you cross the street
    • Don’t assume that you’re always safe when you are on a crosswalk—be alert
    • Never wear headphones while you are walking
    • Don’t attempt to cross the street if your view is blocked
    • Never assume that a car will stop for you, even if you are on a crosswalk
    • If there is a crosswalk available, only cross at that designated spot
    • Try to wear brightly colored or reflective clothes
