    Should I always wait for the green light before crossing?


    From a young age we are all told how to use the roads to reduce the risk of our involvement in a pedestrian-related road traffic accident.

    While we all understand that using designated crossings is the safest way to cross, it is just as important that we walk across the road at the right time, waiting for the green light before walking regardless of whether the cars have stopped or not.

    Failing to wait for the green man

    In question to the number of accidents that caused a pedestrian injury or death, the Department of Transport’s Reported Road Casualties Great Britain: 2013 Annual Report highlighted that hurried pedestrian action was accountable for 28 per cent of pedestrian road accidents.

    This came second only to the 59 per cent caused by the pedestrian failing to look properly before walking onto the road.

    These figures suggest that a large proportion of pedestrian-related road accidents can be avoided if an appropriate level of precaution is taken before crossing the road. This includes waiting for the green crossing signal before walking out into the road.
