Safety tactics you can implement to safely cross a street

When you are a pedestrian, you are subject to the risks of walking near moving vehicles. There are times when drivers do not even notice people around them or pedestrians walking in the road. In fact, if you have ever been behind the wheel, you may have had an experience where you did not notice someone standing on the roadside until it startled you a little. At Doane Law Office, LLC, we are familiar with the dangers that pedestrians in Indiana are subject to. 

What can you do to keep yourself safe while cycling?

Whenever you take your bike out and ride the busy streets of Indiana, it is never a bad idea to remind yourself of the basic rules of safety. Becoming complacent or too confident with your cycling skills may create a liability if you are faced with a sudden hazard on your ride. Whether you are looking for a brief refresher or you are new to the world of cycling, it is imperative that you are aware of some general safety tips. 

Why are streets inherently dangerous for pedestrians?

When you think about pedestrian hazards in Indiana, you probably think of the vehicles, and the drivers controlling them. Distracted, drunk or aggressive drivers all play their part in pedestrian deaths each year. However, some of the fault for fatal accidents rests in the hands of the professionals who designed the roadways.

While many pet owners in Indiana take precautions to properly train their dogs about how to act around other people and pets, there are times when sudden behavioral changes can create a dangerous situation. Dogs, for whatever reason, may become spooked or irritated at times and become aggressive when their owners least suspect it. There are also dogs that have not been properly trained or have been abused that are running loose but should not be allowed in public places.
