What If I’m Involved in a Pedestrian Accident at Night?

Many of us enjoy taking walks to exercise, get some fresh air, and clear our nights. However, what happens when your enjoyable evening is interrupted with screeching brakes and a painful injury? Pedestrian accidents occur quite commonly at night when visibility is low and drivers are caught off guard, not expecting to come across someone in the streets. Children are also often victims of these tragic accidents, the majority of which occur between the hours of 5 – 9 PM. These circumstances become even more dangerous in the shorter fall and winter months when there is significantly diminished visibility with very low levels of light.

How Can I Avoid Pedestrian Accidents After Dark?

The truth of the matter is, you should not have to give up something you love for fear of a potential accident that may never happen. Taking the correct preventative steps will ensure your night walks are safe, pleasant, and something you can enjoy for years to come.

The next time you take a nighttime stroll, consider these tips to protect yourself from harm:

  • Do not wear dark clothing and carry reflective gear.
  • Carry a flashlight, even if you leave when the sun is still out. You never know how quickly the dusk can quickly turn to nighttime.
  • Don’t walk alone! One lone individual is much harder to spot than a group of 2 or 3 people as there is safety in numbers.  
  • Walk in well-lit areas. Avoid isolated places to protect yourself from both injury and crime.
  • Stay on sidewalks or in designated walking areas.
