Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrians are more likely to die in a crash than passengers in enclosed cars. This is because pedestrians are vulnerable in an accident, unlike passengers in private cars, who are covered by airbags and seat belts, which can lessen the chance of fatal injuries.

Pedestrian deaths in the United States have skyrocketed in recent years. Between 2007 and 2016, pedestrian deaths increased by 27%, while traffic-related deaths decreased by 14%.

Because of the state’s bad roads, California is an especially dangerous state for pedestrians. Californians are aware that pedestrians should use extra caution when crossing busy streets.

When it comes to pedestrian safety, California has some of the worst in the country. According to the California Authority, the death rate in California is predicted to be 25% higher than the national average. In 2018, 893 pedestrian deaths and 14,000 pedestrian injuries were on California’s roadways.
