The City of Warner Robins is Observing an Uptick in Pedestrian Accidents
WARNER ROBINS, GEORGIA - A news report published on 13wmaz.com states that the City of Warner Robins is witnessing an uptick in pedestrian accidents.* Warner Robins Chief of Police John Wagner stated that both drivers and pedestrians play a role in helping to prevent these types of accidents.
The most recent pedestrian accident occurred last Tuesday night when a car struck a woman who eventually passed away.
One witness stated that they witnessed a pedestrian being struck and killed by a car on the sidewalk in front of a Little Caesars.
According to the report, nine pedestrians were hit by a car in Warner Robbins in the past five years. Some safety advocates are asking for more sidewalks to be constructed; others believe slowing down traffic is key to reducing pedestrian accidents in the city.
Watson Boulevard is one of the more dangerous roads for pedestrians. The boulevard is over eight miles. Chief Wagner stated that the city has invested "a tremendous amount of money on sidewalks." He also stated that it is very important to make sure the traffic signals give pedestrians plenty of time to cross the street.
