When it is pedestrian vs. driver in an accident you know who comes out on the short end. What are the protocols between the person or people who are walking and those behind the wheel? In this cell phone era people are constantly distracted so more accidents are occurring in the Baltimore area between pedestrians and drivers.
Who has the right of way? Many pedestrians think that because they are on foot they always have the right-of-way. This is not necessarily true. Naturally, you cannot just dart out into the road when cars do not have a reasonable opportunity to stop. Sidewalks exist for a reason. They must be used whenever they are available. When they are not you should always walk on the left side facing traffic.
