Pedestrian Accidents with Vehicles

Pedestrian Accidents Statistics

pedestrian accidents with vehicles in Michigan for Thurswell LawPedestrians share U.S. roadways with all types of vehicles. Sadly, pedestrians are among the few groups of road users to experience a continuous increase in fatalities throughout the past decade. Between 2003 and 2012, 47,000 people died as the result of a vehicle/pedestrian accident. That is 16 times the number who died from natural disasters during the same time period.

As healthcare and environmental experts encourage more to walk from place to place, it might be reasonable to expect heightened awareness by drivers. But pedestrian accidents happen far too often. Even seasoned drivers tend to focus more on other vehicles and less on pedestrians on the periphery of the roadway.

Where Most Pedestrian Accidents Occur: On the Road

Drivers have a responsibility to look out for others – vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians – while they are in control of their vehicle. A pedestrian accident is most likely to occur in a parking lot (where drivers are backing up) or near an intersection (where drivers are making turns). Drivers often take their foot off of the brake and begin moving when they see that traffic has cleared. Unfortunately, by the time they recognize that a pedestrian is in their pathway, it is sometimes too late.
