Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Every day, millions of pedestrians walk along and across U.S. roadways. Unfortunately, pedestrians are one of the most vulnerable users on the road. It’s mainly because they are severely under-protected in case a serious accident occurs. 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.

In 2018 alone, 893 pedestrians were killed while 14,000 pedestrians were injured on California roadways. Some common reasons for pedestrian accidents are negligent driving, speeding, and drivers failing to yield to pedestrians.
