As the roads become less safe for pedestrians, early last year, a new pedestrian law was introduced in Ontario. It emphasized that motorists should wait for the pedestrian to cross the crosswalks or pedestrian crossovers completely.

However, if you are injured from colliding with a motor vehicle, you are entitled to compensation.

Types of Claims

Some of the benefits you can claim if you suffer injuries due to the collision include, medical expenses, replacement of income, etc. It all depends on the circumstances of the accident.

Kalsi & Associates Reiterate the Importance of the Slow Down and Move Over Legislation

Every motorist should remember to abide by the law, Slow Down, and Move Over. This rule has gone through many changes over time, with more vehicles being added to the cars covered by this law.
 
This road safety rule is straightforward and easy to understand. It ensures the safety of workers who have to park their cars on or at the side of the road. Vehicles covered in this legislation, not only includes police vehicles and ambulances but it includes tow trucks, garbage collectors, utility workers among others.
 
Several cases have been reported of where the operators of said vehicles have been involved in accidents which lead to their injuries and sometimes death. We would like to reiterate to all motorists to slow down as they approach such vehicles, on the road.
 
If you are on the road with multiple lanes, then, move over and give the operators enough room to continue with their business or services. Let us be aware on the roads as road safety begins with each person.
