According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 150,000 pedestrians are injured in traffic accidents every year, equating to roughly one pedestrian-related death every two hours. Anyone who is not in a motor vehicle can be considered a pedestrian, including people on foot, skateboarders, individuals in wheelchairs, and bicyclists. While the causes of pedestrian accidents are many, most collisions can be traced back to some form of driver negligence.
Driving while intoxicated
Failing to yield
Driving while drowsy
Ignoring stop signs and red lights
