Pedestrian Safety Campaign - People Behaving Badly - YouTube

Stanley Roberts hangs out the the Alameda Police Traffic Division as they conduct a traffic safety campaign related to pedestrian safety
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Municipalities across California have begun stepping up law enforcement efforts on pedestrian traffic laws.  This comes on the heels of a spike across the Golden State in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.  This video is a prime example of people failing to abide by the California Vehicle Code sections which require motor vehicle operators to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks and require pedestrians to not enter roadways unless and until it it safe to do so.

California launches pedestrian safety campaign

Sacramento is the testing ground for a state pedestrian safety campaign launched Monday.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

California is launching a state-wide campaign to highlight pedestrian safety issues.  It will feature "Pete Walker", a pedestrian who walks around in a suit of "armor" made from car parts to make the point of how vulnerable persons traveling on foot are to serious injury in motor vehicle crashes.

Google patent: Glue would stick pedestrians to self-driving cars after collision

Google patent: Glue would stick pedestrians to self-driving cars after collision | Pedestrian Safety and Accident Prevention in California - CA Pedestrian Accident Attorney | Scoop.it
Google on May 17 received a patent to coat the front ends of robot cars with glue so that in case of collision a pedestrian would stick to the vehicle, and escape further injury.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Concepts like the one proposed in this Google patent serve as hope for fewer pedestrian accidents that result in serious injury or death.  However, persons struck by cars is and will continue to be a cause for concern for safety for many years to come in my opinion as a pedestrian accident and injury lawyer that has handled hundreds of cases in the last 20 years.

Volvo Buses demonstrates pedestrian and cyclist detection system for busy cities

Volvo Buses demonstrates pedestrian and cyclist detection system for busy cities | Pedestrian Safety and Accident Prevention in California - CA Pedestrian Accident Attorney | Scoop.it
A ‘Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection System’ for buses has been unveiled by Volvo that is designed to cut the number of road traffic deaths.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

As a pedestrian accident attorney in Los Angeles, I applaud the efforts of vehicle manufacturers like Volvo to develop technology to help reduce pedestrian accidents.  However, I don't believe that technology alone will ever solve the problem of pedestrians being struck by vehicles in urban areas like L.A. Prudence by both drivers and those traveling on foot is always a better preventative measure than any other.  For more information on pedestrian accident and injury claims in and around Los Angeles click here .
