How far can a pedestrian be seen from the driver seat of a car? It turns out that this is not an easy question to answer. There are many factors in play, including the height of the pedestrian, how high up they are sitting in their vehicle and what type of vehicle they are driving.

To help make sure this doesn’t happen again, we’ve compiled a list of some tips and tricks for drivers who want to be more aware: -Look out for cars coming from behind you
