There are many reasons and situations for Connecticut residents to travel by foot. Whether they are walking on a city sidewalk, taking a stroll in a park or residential area, walking in a parking lot or traveling in a crosswalk, it is fairly common to be a pedestrian in the state no matter what time of year it is. Although many pedestrians walk in areas where motor vehicle frequent, pedestrians are afforded rights. While driving laws work to protect pedestrians and increase their safety, some drivers unfortunately do not follow these rules. Such a situation results in serious and even fatal pedestrian accidents.
