What causes the most accidents at pedestrian crosswalks?
Research suggests that a crosswalk gives a pedestrian a false sense of security. They often step off of the curb expecting the vehicle to stop and the driver fails to stop, resulting in an accident. At any crosswalk, marked or unmarked, the pedestrian is responsible to be cautious and alert before crossing the street.
