How to cross the street safely
Although learning to cross the street is something we all learn when we are very young, as we get older it becomes more tempting to forget some of the things we have been taught in favour of getting across faster, or crossing outside of a designated area. As an adult it can be helpful to rethink how to cross the street safely so that you know how to avoid being involved in a road accident in Torbay as a pedestrian.
Choose a crossing
One of the ways pedestrians are injured in a road accident in Torbay is by choosing to cross outside of a designated crossing. Crossings are there to make it safe for you to get across the road, and are also signposted for motorists so that they know the slow down and look for pedestrians. If you cross outside of a crossing then cars are more likely to hit you as they will not be prepared to slow down.

If you get hit by a car as a pedestrian and it was the fault of the driver rather than you own fault, you may be able to claim compensation from the driver for any injuries your road accident in Torbay caused you.
