Taking measures to reduce the odds of pedestrian accidents

As warmer weather approaches, many individuals in Louisiana may choose to opt out of driving a motor vehicle and travel from place to place on foot. While a similar decision may come with a variety of potential benefits, it could also prove dangerous at times. Since pedestrian accidents run the risk of being some of the most catastrophic incidents a person can experience, knowing the steps to take to reduce the odds of a collision could be essential to staying safe.

Following closely behind another vehicle can be a dangerous decision. Should that vehicle decide to slow down to make a turn, a driver who doesn't allow enough space might find it difficult to react in time to avoid collision. Although many rear-end car accidents may be nothing more than mere fender benders, some can be devastating. A recent rear-end collision in Louisiana has claimed the life of a 44-year-old woman.

Car accidents that occur under similar circumstances can be disastrous, and a recent collision in Louisiana has claimed the life of a 63-year-old woman.

A recent collision in a parking lot in Louisiana has reportedly claimed the life of a 7-year-old boy.

A police officer in Louisiana has been arrested and charged with negligent homicide after a recent collision led to the wrongful death of a 1-year-old girl.

Operating a vehicle in the wrong lane of traffic is never advisable, and far too many collisions have taken place under similar circumstances.

Car accidents of this nature run the risk of ending in catastrophe. A recent head-on collision in Louisiana has claimed the life of one, and left another with serious injuries.
