Each day people throughout the greater Toronto area take to the streets in their vehicles. Relied upon by many to get from one place to another, much of the time they interact without any problems. There are times however when this is not always the case. When vehicles collide with pedestrians, those individuals could be seriously injured.

There are many reasons why these accidents occur. Recently, experts offered several ways in which the number of these accidents that occur, could be reduced.

The first involves pedestrian accidents resulting from cars making left-hand turns. To reduce the number of these incidents that occur it could make sense to prohibit those turns during the times of day when pedestrians are likely to be crossing the street. Another alternative could be to improve the signage in the area.

The second issue that could cause a serious accident on Toronto roads is heavy trucks. Pedestrians and cyclists are sometimes killed when they collide with the side of these vehicles. Some believe making side guards on those trucks mandatory, would make a difference by keeping those individuals from getting under the wheels of the truck.

Another issue is vehicles travelling too fast. Speed plays a role in how serious a pedestrian’s injuries are following a crash. The fix for this is simple—reducing the speed limit on roads throughout the city.

Distracted drivers could also result in pedestrian accidents occurring. Whatever the distraction, educating both drivers and pedestrians about the dangers of not focusing on your surroundings, could make a difference in the number of pedestrian accidents that occur.

Last, accidents of this nature could occur when pedestrians cross the street in the middle of a block, rather than walking to the corner. Installing more mid-blocking crossings could be used to combat this issue.
