Pedestrians are everywhere. They are in large cities, small towns and everywhere in between. Pedestrians are part of the traffic flow since they cross at marked intersections. Some might cross illegally, which is known as jaywalking. If you are a pedestrian it's important for you to know what activities you should avoid so you are not involved in an accident.
