Pedestrian accidents are one type of auto accident that has the highest the fatality rate. Individuals walking near or along roadways are at risk of being struck by a vehicle due to their lack of visibility. All drivers should devote all of their attention to the roadways in order to avoid any type of auto accident. However, thousands of drivers are demonstrating reckless actions by driving distracted, operating their vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and speeding. Any individual that plans to walk at night or in areas that are not well-lit should wear reflective clothing, carry flashlights and use sidewalks and crosswalks when available. However, it is rare that the actions of the pedestrian cause an accident and the liability is with the driver of the vehicle.
