Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrian accidents are more deadly than other types of accidents because pedestrians have no protection in an accident. Those who are riding in cars are in vehicles that weigh an average of at least 4,000 pounds and have seat belts and airbags to protect them.

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.

Statistics show that California is particularly dangerous for pedestrians when compared with other states.
