Understanding Your Rights as a Pedestrian
While it may not seem like it, crossing the street in a crosswalk is statistically one of the most dangerous things that people do on a daily basis. Approximately 30% of all pedestrian-related fatalities occur while the pedestrian is crossing in a crosswalk at a busy intersection. Nearly half of these fatalities occur at intersections that have no visible markings. While it is true that pedestrians always have the right of way, many drivers fail to yield to pedestrians, or simply do not see them. This can lead to extensive injuries when an individual is struck by a car or other motor vehicle.
- Common factors that lead to pedestrian accidents include:
- High volume of pedestrians
- Increased traffic at busy intersection
- The number of traffic lanes
- Decreased visibility
- Driver impairment
- Distracted driving or DUI
