Vulnerable road users - pedestrians

Pedestrians whether old or young are all potentially vulnerable. Any impact at all on a pedestrian is potentially fatal, and that goes for a pedestrian of any age.

Of course within the class of pedestrians themselves there are even more vulnerable people - the eldery and the young for instance.

You need to anticipate whether pedestrians are going to cross the road in front of you. Whilst many will err on the side of caution, there will be those who cut it fine and jog across infront of you, or simply misjudge it causing you to brake harshly. By anticipating and reducing your speed in advance you can help to reduce the chance of this happening.

Also these days with so many distractions like mobile phones, music players and so on, many pedestrians will lose one of their senses - hearing - and might have a casual glance then not look again, so you really do need to be extra vigilant when there are pedestrians around.

Most of all when there are children around you need to keep your wits about you, because there is always the chance they will suddenly wander or rush out into the road, being less aware of the dangers than older people.
