Driving in Clifton can be as dangerous as driving anywhere else. Whether you’re on a busy road, intersection, or highway in Clifton, here are a few ways you can avoid an accident:
- Always be aware of your surroundings. When you’re pulling into traffic, do it slowly. When you’re at an intersection making a right-hand turn, look both directions before proceedings. Vehicles can come completely out of nowhere when you least expect it, so be careful on busy intersections.
- Always keep at least one of your hands on the steering wheel. People who don’t follow this precaution are more likely to get into accidents.
- Reduce in-car distractions. A lot of people like to drive on the roads while listening to the radio or their cell phones. If traffic is heavy, you don’t want to be occupied with other devices. You want to keep your eyes on the road.
- Look backwards when you’re backing out! Some drivers completely neglect to do this, and they often end up backing up into another driver.
Pedestrian Accidents on Clifton NJ Turnpikes and Parkways
Pedestrian accidents on turnpikes and parkways are more common than you think. Pedestrians often appear on turnpikes and parkways because they’re simply trying to walk across them, and consequenrly they can be hit by a speedy motorist.
Pedestrians also appear on turnpikes and parkways because of a previous crash. They were either injured or thrown from their vehicles, and so they ended up on the parkway.
Have you ever seen a person on the parkway fixing their own vehicles? Maybe they were pushing them out of the parkway, and at that moment a careless driver ended up hitting them.
Sometimes it could be because it’s dark. More than 90 percent of crashes on the parkway happen after it’s dark. Alcohol use, suicidal behavior, and driver inattention are all contributing factors.
If you’re a pedestrian who’s been injured on a turnpike or parkway, seek immediate medical treatment, then call a personal injury lawyer to handle your case in court.
