Effort to Reduce Baltimore County Pedestrian Accidents Underway

By Alpert Schreyer on July 9, 2014

Baltimore County AttorneyThe year 2013 marked a five-year-high for pedestrian accident fatalities in Baltimore County. Unfortunately, a news report in The Baltimore Sun indicates the county is on track to hit the same number this year. In an effort to reduce the number of pedestrian injuries and fatalities, county officials have launched a “Heads Up! Walk Safe” campaign. During the awareness campaign, authorities will urge pedestrians to be more aware of their surroundings.

The awareness campaign will consist of increased enforcement of pedestrian laws to encourage people to use the crosswalks and to only cross when given the green light. Officials also want to encourage pedestrians to:

  • Make eye contact with drivers before entering an intersection.
  • Remain attentive at bus stops and not focus solely on the approaching bus.
  • Put away their phones while walking near the roadway.
  • Use extra caution at known dangerous locations with higher speed limits, such as York Road in Towson, Liberty Road in Randallstown, and Merritt Boulevard in Dundalk.
  • Pay attention to traffic signals.
  • Only cross at intersections or crosswalks.

Due to the rise in Baltimore pedestrian accidents it is important to use caution at all times.  In 2013 alone, there were 420 pedestrian accidents that resulted in 22 fatalities.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Maryland pedestrian accident, make sure you research your legal rights and options. You may be able to hold the at-fault driver accountable for your lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and other related damages. An experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer will be able to provide you with the information you need to pursue your legal rights.
