How To Avoid Car Accidents and Beat Traffic Tickets!
So You Want To Avoid a Car Accident or "Beat" a Traffic Ticket?
It's actually not that hard! In fact, everything you need to know is right in front of you already! They call them Street Signs and Traffic Lights. You know, those things that inconvenience us when we are walking and driving down the street? Most car accidents occur due to driver or pedestrian negligence. If people followed the rules and the signs of the road there would be a lot less fatalities and accidents. It is that simple!
Make Sure Your Car is Safe! Plan Ahead!
A Dangerous Game
I live in a small city. There are quite a few dangerous intersections within our city and one of those intersections claims some kind of accident every 4 days. That's bad. What's worse? Many of the accident's that occur involve pedestrians.
Now, as a frequent driver in this city, I notice a lot of pedestrians making dangerous choices while crossing these dangerous intersections. The worst thing that I see very often is that pedestrians press the "walk" button and then walk right into traffic assuming the cars will stop.They don't wait for the walk signal.
First of all, it is very annoying, because if you are driving after sitting at the light for 6 minutes, you don't want to have to stop. And if you weren't driving, then you have to sit through 2 lights even though the pedestrian is already 2 blocks down the road.
Then you have the pedestrians that walk extremely slow at a long angle across the street to make you have to wait...and they are staring at you the whole time saying in their head, "Yea...that's right. You have to wait for me...Pedestrians have the right of way...".
Now I appreciate that my city takes precautions for pedestrians. Every bad intersection has a button pedestrians can press to wait, and soon receive a GO sign where all cars in all directions are stopped so the the pedestrian can safely cross the intersection and continue on his or her journey.
I would like to urge all drivers and pedestrians to use caution. Follow the speed limits, don't drink or text and drive. Focus on the road and don't be distracted.
Pedestrians. If you are going to push the button on the pole at the intersection, please wait for your turn to go. It's polite, eases traffic, and reduces accidents.
Let's face it; we are all going to face traffic and inconveniences while driving or walking. Let's pay attention, be courteous, and obey all traffic directions. Maybe we can reduce traffic accidents, which would save lives and also money.
