Thousands of people every year are victims of tragic and preventable Pedestrian Accidents. Pedestrians have the right to walk, bike, and run safely without fear of being struck by a motor vehicle. When car drivers fail to be aware and avoid pedestrians, they can wreak havoc, and in many cases, cause death.
Here are some statistics about the disturbingly high number of Pedestrian Accidents on our nation’s roads and highways:
• There were a total of 4,735 pedestrians killed in motor vehicle accidents in the US in 2013.
• 1 out of every 5 pedestrians killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2013 was the victim of a hit-and-run.
• In New York, there were 335 pedestrian fatalities due to traffic accidents in 2013. That number accounted for nearly 28% of total traffic fatalities in the state that year.
• In New Jersey, there were 129 pedestrian fatalities in 2013, representing nearly 24% of the state’s total traffic fatalities.
