Pedestrian accidents in Pittsburgh have been in the news a lot of late. With the winter months approaching and the days getting shorter, it is important to pay close attention to your surroundings when driving. This is especially true in urban areas where parked cars, traffic lights, and many pedestrians can fill our roads and sidewalks. People who are injured in pedestrian accidents are usually seriously injured and many lose their lives. Accidents happen, of course, but by paying better attention to the road ahead and on each side, you can help prevent more of these pedestrian accidents from happening.
