Pedestrian Road Safety

Road traffic crashes kill about 1.24 million people each year. More than one fifth of these deaths occur among pedestrians. Pedestrian traffic accidents are preventable. Road safety should be a priority for pedestrians and drivers alike. Help raise awareness to reduce and eliminate risk factors of pedestrian traffic accidents.

Improve Visibility

Make yourself seen by drivers by wearing reflective and bright clothing. Use a flashlight and light up blinkers for your clothing when walking at night. When crossing a street, never jump out from a line of parked cars or other obstacle. It’s likely that drivers cannot see you or hear you, which is why you should emerge slowly and safely. Wait for the vehicle to slow down and make eye contact with the driver before crossing.

Predict A Dangerous Situation

Always use the sidewalks when they are an option rather than roadways. Never cross the street diagonally. Use the crosswalks and obey the traffic signals. Don’t assume that a vehicle can see you. Make eye contact with a driver when crossing the street at a stop sign to be sure that the driver acknowledges your presence. Plan ahead to avoid walking if you are drowsy or have been using drugs or alcohol.

Avoid Distractions

Avoid distractions such as listening to music, texting, or talking on the phone. Consider that your ability to hear and/or see a vehicle approaching can be hindered by such risk factors. These distractions may also prevent the pedestrian from seeing upcoming hazards, warning signs, or traffic signs and signals.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
