Top ways to avoid pedestrian v. car injuries:

(1).  Avoid Distractions. Avoid using headphones when running or exercising near public roads.  The extra awareness really helps avoid car collisions.

(2).  Avoid Nighttime Running. Avoid nighttime exercising near heavily used roadways.  Use the backroads that are still safe for decreased risk.

(3).  Defensive Awareness.  Never assume the car sees you. Always assume the car doesn’t see you or is not looking for you. Your health and life are at risk if you assume the car sees you.
