Whether a traveler is a driver or a passenger in a vehicle, a person is a pedestrian while entering and exiting a vehicle. This can create additional dangers that many are not completely aware of. Whether they are in a parking lot, crossing the road, or on a sidewalk, when a person is traveling by foot near automobiles, they risk being hit by them. This is especially true for bus passengers. If a driver is not paying attention, speeding or distracted, they could collide with a pedestrian.
Whether it is snowing or not, drivers in Pennsylvania understand that the winter months often mean bad road conditions. Even when there is no snow, ice could be present and could cause some hazards. Drivers should take extra precautions to ensure they can maneuver their vehicle properly, and stop for signs and signals. A driver who is traveling too fast for conditions or is distracted could cause a collision. This could result in serious injuries and even fatalities.
