Pedestrians are more vulnerable to road dangers than passengers in private vehicles. They are more likely to sustain serious injuries that can result in permanent disabilities or death. The road is a dangerous place for pedestrians. Because they are unprotected and vulnerable, they are most susceptible to serious injury in the event of a severe accident.

Every year, approximately 110,000 pedestrians are injured in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 6,227 pedestrians were killed in 2018, an increase of 250 from the previous year.

Pedestrian accidents in California have been on the rise. In 2017, nearly 1,200 pedestrians were killed, an almost one-quarter increase over the previous year. In the meantime, over 14,000 pedestrians have been injured. Distracted driving, speeding, intoxicated drivers, and failure to yield the right way are common causes of pedestrian accidents.
