When drivers fail to practice safe driving, pedestrians are at risk. Pedestrians can be injured while crossing the street, traveling on the side of the road, parking lots and even in crosswalks.
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable travelers and can be injured by cars, trucks, bicyclists, buses and other vehicles. Pedestrian accidents can occur when drivers speed, fail to stay within their lanes, talk on cell phones while driving or text while driving.
Pedestrians have the strongest protection in crosswalks and intersections with traffic signals which indicate when pedestrians can travel across the street.
There are also greater protections in school zones, where there are crosswalks, crossing guards during school hours and drivers must travel at 20 mph.
Pedestrian accidents can end in death or leave victims seriously injured. These injuries may require months of medical treatment. This places a hardship on a family, especially when the injured individual financially supports the household. In addition to helping the person recover, there are heavy concerns and anxiety over who will pay the bills.
