New Jersey safety reminders to prevent pedestrian accidents


New Jersey officials do their best to make sure that residents can safely walk on streets without fear of being struck by motorists. Pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries and death.

Motorists: to yield or not to yield to pedestrians?


New Jersey maintains a set of traffic regulations that are designed to protect the safety of motorists and pedestrians. However, some rules are updated occasionally in order to promote safety. When laws are updated, despite being promoted by the state, some motorists remain blissfully unaware. Being aware of these changes is crucial for drivers and especially pedestrians, who can sustain serious injuries or even lose their lives in a pedestrian accident. So what does a New Jersey driver need to know when it comes to the state's updated laws about pedestrians?

Man responsible for fatal pedestrian accident faces charges


Pedestrians who are accident victims usually sustain serious injuries. Some even lose their lives. Ironically, pedestrians typically have the right of way and all a driver needs to do to prevent a pedestrian accident is to follow the law and yield to a pedestrian. However, some drivers either forget this law or intentionally break it. Regardless of whatever a driver's reason may be, it is still an act of negligence and the driver can be held criminally liable. This was apparent in a recent accident that happened just north of Newark, New Jersey.
