Pedestrian Safety

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Driver Safety For You & Your Family

Jaywalking is not a term that you encounter much, at least not in Houston, TX, but you should beware Jaywalking is an offense in several US states, including Texas and Florida. Jaywalking regulations are designed to increase pedestrian safety and to reduce vehicle and pedestrian interaction. When it comes to pedestrian safety, some forget, the pedestrian always has the right of way, but must also obey traffic laws. Most crashes involving pedestrians, and most pedestrian fatalities happen at mid-block, not at an intersection.

According to ClickOrlando.com, some Florida high schools are under investigations to increase student safety. The aim is illegal student drop-offs in front of other schools, an action that can result in a traffic citation.

Nearly seven of every ten pedestrian fatalities happen in urban areas and nine out of every ten pedestrian fatalities occur during normal weather conditions. The more a driver knows about what a pedestrian is likely to do, or the kind of circumstances a pedestrian faces, the better off that driver will be when it comes to avoiding hitting a pedestrian.

To help prevent unnecessary traffic citations and to receive an insurance discount, you may take the Florida traffic school course, FloridaWheelsinMotion.com. FloridaWheelsinMotion.com, an online driver safety school is approved in the state of Florida and covers everything from pedestrians and bicyclists to cars and trucks.

As always, you should check with your insurance agent prior to taking the defensive driving course to determine the amount of your insurance discount. Register anytime, anywhere for your online driver safety course by going to www.defensivedriving.com.
