DRIVE SAFELY NEAR CRASH SCENES

Illinois State Police warn motorists to be especially vigilant and watch for pedestrians and vehicles near crash scenes.  Pedestrians account for more than 13 percent of car crash deaths.  Pedestrians on the roadway pose a great risk to themselves and motorists and both are responsible for traffic safety.  Always be prepared to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians.  On four-lane highways, pedestrians should walk on the passenger side of the road as far away from the highway as possible.  In two-way traffic, pedestrians should walk facing oncoming traffic.  At night, use a flashlight or wear reflective clothing and always try to call for assistance before walking along the interstate.  Motorists should reduce speed, move to an alternate lane, and be aware of the surroundings near crash sites or stalled vehicles.
