From heavy congestion and complicated traffic patterns to foul weather and reckless drivers, motorists have a lot to worry about when behind the wheel. Watching for pedestrians can easily become an afterthought. Unfortunately, this often leads to devastating accidents.
People on foot are incredibly vulnerable, even in low-speed crashes, because they have no protection from the force of impact. In recent years, nearly 6,000 pedestrians have died annually throughout the United States. And those who are lucky enough to survive accidents caused by drunk, distracted, or reckless drivers are likely to sustain life-altering injuries that have lasting repercussions.
