The Safe Pedestrians Scholarship

The personal injury attorneys at Nussbaum Law Group are experienced in handling pedestrian accident cases. At a time when drivers face distractions while on the road, it is increasingly important for pedestrians to be aware of their surroundings. When a pedestrian is involved in an accident on or near the road, the results are often devastating.

The purpose of The Safe Pedestrians Scholarship is to bring awareness to incidents involving pedestrians and allow students to express their opinions and ideas on what can be done to improve the safety and the relationship between cars and walking individuals. In a 750 word essay, discuss the measures you believe the government should take to prevent pedestrian accidents and improve safety. What can be done to ensure safe roadways for all, specifically for pedestrians?
