Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers on the road compared to passengers of private vehicles and motorcycle riders. It’s because pedestrians do not have any form of protection that can help reduce fatal injuries if an accident happens.

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal agency responsible for ensuring the safety of those on America’s roadways, more than 5900 pedestrians were killed in 2016 across the entire United States.

Pedestrians need to exercise extra careful behavior in California. This is a sad fact of living in the Golden State. While the law may require drivers to act a certain way, any Californian who walks anywhere regularly can tell you that most drivers in the state ignore the law. Some common reasons for pedestrian accidents are negligent driving, speeding, and drivers failing to yield to pedestrians.
