A major responsibility of car and truck drivers is to be observant and watch for pedestrians. But motorists don't always pay attention on our roadways and parking lots. That can spell disaster for people who are on foot. A car weighing several thousand pounds can seriously harm or kill a pedestrian even at very low speeds.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) reported that in 2006, about 68,000 pedestrians were hit by motor vehicles, resulting in nearly 5,000 deaths. Pedestrian accidents don't only happen to people crossing a road without using a crosswalk. People who practice safe habits are also in danger when drivers are not paying attention to the road.
They may be changing the radio, eating and talking, or texting on a cell phone. When drivers take their eyes off the road, they increase the odds of a serious collision with a pedestrian.
The causes of pedestrian accidents when a driver is at fault include:
- Failing to come to stop at a traffic light and sign;
- Failing to stop prior to turning right on a red light at an intersection
- Inattentiveness because of cell phones, changing the radio or talking;
- Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs;
- Disregarding a crosswalk;
- Turning onto a street without looking;
- Failing to use turn signals;
- Passing a school bus;
- Not watching for children in neighborhoods, near parks or at schools.
Victims of pedestrian accidents are at a high risk for fractured bones, spinal injury, head injury, brain injury, disfigurement and permanent disability.
