Millions of journeys are made by pedestrians every day on London’s crowded streets.
So it inevitable that there will be accidents involving collisions between vehicles and pedestrians.
If you are a pedestrian all drivers have a legal duty to take care for your safety when you attempt to cross the road.
The courts realise that a pedestrian poses very little threat to anyone, whereas a motorist posses an enormous threat, so the law usually works in favour of the injured pedestrian.
Of course these cases are easier to prove if the pedestrian is crossing at a pelican crossing or a zebra crossing.
But drivers have to take care for your safety where ever you choose to cross the road!
