Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Pedestrians are more vulnerable to the dangers of the roadway compared to passengers of private vehicles. Unlike passengers of private cars with airbags and seat belts to protect them, pedestrians do not have any protection that can help them avoid sustaining fatal injuries.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, approximately 6,227 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. back in 2018, a 250 increase from the previous year.
