To prevent pedestrian accidents, drivers must be cautious while driving and obey traffic laws. They should always yield to pedestrians at intersections and crosswalks, and never assume that pedestrians will yield to them.
Drivers should also avoid distractions while driving, such as texting or talking on the phone, as it can cause them to lose focus on the road. Pedestrians, on the other hand, should always use designated crosswalks and sidewalks when walking. They should also make themselves visible to drivers by wearing bright or reflective clothing and carrying a flashlight when walking at night. Pedestrians should also avoid distractions such as talking on the phone or listening to music while crossing the street.
