On Sunday, April 29, 2012, in Fontana, California, a 25-year-old pedestrian walking west on Citrus Avenue, near the intersection with Jackson Street, lost his life after being struck by 2006 Ford van north on Citrus. The cause of the accident had not been publically released at the time this article was written. This horrible loss of life resulted in someone’s negligence or someone’s violation of one or more traffic laws. These laws, if followed by both pedestrians and vehicles, will generally protect both from accidents and the damages that often follow.
While we are on the road, either as a pedestrian or as a driver, we all need to keep focused on our surroundings and make sure we are not distracted with cell phones, cigarettes, the radio or others in the car. We need to be in full compliance with the rules of the road. Doing our best while driving may not fully protect us from accidents, such as this Fontana auto accident, but it will significantly reduce the chances of accidents and place us in a great position to recover from the negligence of others.
