Pedestrian Lanes: Are you just a design?

Pedestrian Lanes, for what are you created for? What is your purpose on earth?

In  formal definition, Pedestrian Lanes  is a designated point on a road at which some means are employed to assist pedestrians wishing to cross. They are designed to keep pedestrians together where they can be seen by motorists, and where they can cross most safely across the flow of vehicular traffic.

Pedestrian Lanes are usually seen at every streets all over the world. Its for us, Pedestrians, have a safezone whenever we cross streets. Its for us not to be involve to any accident.

Benefits of Pedestrian Lanes are:

Distance-Pedestrian lanes leave room between moving traffic and pedestrians. To prevent accidents, these lanes allow extra room for people to be farther from traffic. Some cities do not use these lanes, and accidents happen when cars are too close to pedestrians on gravel shoulders or sidewalks.

Effects-Not only does a pedestrian lane leave extra room for the safety of pedestrians, but it also allows extra room for emergency vehicles. In cities it can be difficult for emergency vehicles to get through roads, but pedestrian lanes allow these vehicles to move past traffic more quickly.

Eco-Friendly-When cities and towns are pedestrian-friendly, more people are likely to walk or bike places rather than drive a car. This means that emissions will decrease in these areas as people rely less on using fuel.

But why do others still don not follow just a very simple rule?

Such a shame. These are the kind of people to be blamed why accidents always happen at the street.

It is time to make a change.
