The accidents happen at various places, not only on roads. Parking lots for example can also be a dangerous place for pedestrians.
At the same, taking a zebra crossing to get to the other side of the road does not guarantee you a safe crossing. "Each year, some 200 pedestrians are heavily injured or killed when taking the zebra crossing. This shows that the rules are not always being respected, both by motorists or pedestrians", BIVV spokesman Benoît Godart explains.
