When drivers fail to yield, pedestrians pay the price. Busy intersections and shorter days mean that drivers need to be extra careful during fall and winter.
As the weather changes and daylight hours decrease, pedestrians become more vulnerable.
Nearly half of all crashes with pedestrians happen between October and January. Even when drivers proceed with caution, it's hard to see pedestrians when visibility is poor.
In B.C., approximately 80 per cent of crashes involving pedestrians happen at intersections. Whether it's taking a break from your phone or yielding the right-of-way, we all need to do our part to keep pedestrians safe.
