Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014 -- “At The Jones Firm, our personal injury attorneys realize that when it comes to laws governing pedestrians and the interactions they have with the vehicles around them, things can get a little hazy,” explains a recent article published by The Jones Firm, a personal injury law firm of Bellevue WA specializing in auto pedestrian accidents.
Dax Jones’ article outlines the various laws and regulations surrounding and governing pedestrian and vehicle interaction on the roadways.
Right of way at crosswalks, intersections, and other commonly misunderstood laws are all addressed, but The Jones Firm also provides a great deal of tips and other information for pedestrians to follow that will help them stay safe, but also make them less likely to be ‘at-fault’ in an auto pedestrian accident.

According to the article, laws that apply to pedestrians include, following traffic signals, never jaywalking, walking or riding on a sidewalk if available, and yielding to vehicles outside of intersections.
Anyone who is a frequent pedestrian or who drives in areas congested with walkers and bicyclists should read this informative article on auto-pedestrian interaction.
