Two police officers nearly struck while walking in crosswalk

Even though pedestrians should always be granted the right of way, sometimes drivers fail to do so. As such, everyone must stay alert for oncoming traffic when walking across the street. This point was emphatically made recently in Rutland, Massachusetts, when two adult pedestrians were nearly struck in a crosswalk by a distracted driver. But the two pedestrians were not your average citizens; they were police officers.

How do I pick a safe walking route?

You may walk for fun or you may walk out of necessity, but in either case you want to walk safely. So, when choosing a walking route, be it to a school, park or any other neighborhood location, you may want to scout the area out. This is especially true when you are picking out a route that your child will walk on his or her own.

How can parents help children learn to cross the street safely?

Some activities become so routine that adults may forget the dangers they harbor. Take, for example, crossing the street. We know we should always cross at a crosswalk and that we should be careful when doing so. However, for children, crossing the street safely is a learned behavior. To help protect them from being injured by automobiles, children should be shown, as well as told, how to cross.

Proper car care can help prevent accidents on summer trips

If you have summer vacation plans that include traveling a long distance by car, you may want to make sure that your vehicle is prepared to make the journey. You can help to eliminate some of the possible mechanical problems that could contribute to a serious accident simply by keeping your vehicle well maintained.

Report indicates RV manufacturer withheld injury data

Recreational vehicles are intended for extended road trips and are generally quite large and heavy. As such, they cannot afford to have safety defects. The manufacturers of these vehicles should be held accountable for making sure they are built to very high safety standards.
