Fatal Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrians currently make up a large percentage of traffic fatalities in the past 33 years. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. have increased by 27 percent from 2007-2016, while other traffic-related deaths decreased by 14 percent.

Pedestrian accidents often lead to severe injury and even death. This is because pedestrians do not have protection against fatal accidents, unlike passengers of private vehicles and motorcycle riders.

Statistics show that California is particularly dangerous for pedestrians when compared with other states. According to the most recent government statistics on pedestrian safety, Los Angeles County is the most dangerous county in the country for pedestrians, with nearly double the number of pedestrians killed as the next highest county.

According to the most recent pedestrian accident statistics from the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, Los Angeles is the most unsafe county in the U.S., let alone California, for people on foot.
