|You have been given some good advice by both Natasha and Lillith. Putting your dog on a leash or tether is the first thing you need to do,then you need to reevaluate if you should even have a dog. Should it get hit,injuries are often treatable,if you can't afford the treatment then you really need to consider wether or not you can afford to have a dog at all.
Did you consider before getting a dog that they,too have needs?
Proper care,food training,socialization,vet care,immunizations to prevent major illness? Did you plan for and budget for this? Do you put aside money each week or payday to cover routine care as well as emergency care if necessary? Were you prepared for the fact that the dog would require time and energy as well as effort on your part to be properly trained and socialized?
Are you aware that proper care and training are a lifelong responsibility when you get a pet and require a commitment from you to provide them for the life of the pet before you bring it home? If not,you need to protect the dog by keeping it from being able to run in front of cars while you seriously consider these things,then if you discover that you are unable to provide them,you need to rehome the dog with someone who is prepared,willing and commited to providing what is best for the dog,not preparing for how you might feel when the dog dies from being hit by a car. Just my 2 cents.
