Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

It is difficult to imagine that a pedestrian would be at fault for an accident. Pedestrians have the right away and should be considered at all times to prevent accidents from occurring. The most common cause for pedestrian accident is a negligent driver.

The most common causes of pedestrian harm by drivers include:

  • Driving through crosswalks or failing to come to a complete stop
  • Driver distractions, such as texting or talking on the phone
  • Drivers turning right without looking out for pedestrians
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to look out for pedestrians at crossroads
  • Driving at high speeds

Tips for Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrians walking in areas without proper highways have a higher chance of getting injured. Although pedestrians should have the right of way on designated crosswalks, there are many drivers that fail to notice them and cause serious injuries.

Pedestrians should practice safety areas, including:

  • Follow all applicable traffic signs and signals
  • Carry a flashlight during the night
  • Stay on the sidewalk when possible
  • Using only designated crosswalks
  • Wear bright or reflective clothing
