What Drivers Should Know About Pedestrian Safety

At Pitre Kia of Las Cruces, we believe that drivers and pedestrians both have the right to use a road without fear or hesitation. Drivers should be sure to slow down at intersections or crosswalks where pedestrians may try to cross the street. As a driver, it is your responsibility to remain sober and attentive at all times.

In just five seconds, your car can travel the length of a football field. Five seconds is roughly the amount of time it takes to glance at a cellphone or change a radio station. Therefore, taking your eyes off of the road for any reason can result in a collision with another person or vehicle.

Driving while drunk or impaired by drugs can result in slower reaction times and an inability to process information. Therefore, it can also increase your chances of getting into an accident with an object, person or vehicle.
