Myrtle Beach Pedestrian Accident Attorney

WMBFNews reports that in the first 13 days of 2019, 1 of the 4 pedestrian accidents ended in a fatality. Of the 107 pedestrian accidents logged in the county for the prior 12 months, 17 were fatal. These are startling statistics that should make us all stop and think. Auger & Auger’s Myrtle Beach pedestrian accident attorney hopes everyone will use vigilance while out on foot in the Myrtle Beach area. 

By the end of 2017, an estimated 32,795 residents were living in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. With a land area of 23.3 square miles, this means there were approximately 1,426 occupants per square mile in this city. Located at the heart of the 60-mile continuous stretch of beaches known as the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach attracts up to 20 million visitors each year during the winter and summer seasons. 

When you put all these facts together, it is certainly easy to draw conclusions. But we also have to put our instincts and attentive actions into play if we want to remain safe. 

Avoiding Pedestrian Accidents

The following are suggestions to reduce your risk of having a Myrtle Beach pedestrian accident: 

Make eye contact with any driver before crossing in front of them. Don’t assume because you’re in a crosswalk — even if your signal tells you it’s your turn — that the driver is not going to roll a couple of feet or proceed through a stop sign intersection.

When no sidewalks are present pedestrians should always walk on the shoulder, and if the road does not have a shoulder you must walk on your far left (facing traffic).

In the South Carolina Code of Laws, Title 56 — in particular Article 25 deals with the Rights and Duties of Pedestrians quite thoroughly. You will find just about everything you can imagine — from definitions of pedestrians (walking, jogging, skating, etc.), crosswalks and safety zones, to traffic signal indications and specific allowances for the handicapped.
