Etiquette Tips For Pedestrian. by Yinka (m): 7:00pm on October 29
Adegboyega Jeremiah
, Nigeria.
Like every thing in life, we are guided by rules either conventional or constitutional.
Below is an excerpt from a piece in the Vanguard Newspaper on pedestrian etiquette.
A pedestrian is a person who is walking on the road especially in an area also used by vehicles. Drivers share the road with many
other road users among whom are pedestrians who are part of exposed road users.Generally there are three types of pedestrians most often involved in road traffic crashes: children, the elderly and adults under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
PEDESTRIAN ETIQUETTE TIPS.
SWINGING
Sometimes you may not realize how you walk until someone tells you. It has already become quite a habit you have gradually grown up into and quite used to. Many
times you may walk with a little swag without knowing. The most common is the swinging of arms and at times including the bag. Whether you swing your arms
foreword or sideways, it can be very inconvenient for other road users. Soldier-like walking also makes you appear as if you are in a hurry.To avoid accidentally knocking other road users, watch your pace and speed; at all times keeping your personal belongings
closer.
FACE UP FACE DOWN
We all like to multitask given the opportunity even while walking. Too many times we see people walking while texting on their
mobile phone, in the same light with new technology your mobile phone is used to locate an address which keeps your eyes glued to the phone, how dangerous this is
as you are totally unprepared for obstacles that may be in front of you. To avoid any form of hazard today it is more important to keep your eyes on the ball while walking.Negligence is no excuse while walking on the road. It is easier to stop and take a simple break while concentrating on what is handheld. Ensure your face is always up rather than down to avoid likely accidents
due to the distraction.
