Every individual traveling by foot is a pedestrian and are at-risk of being injured or killed in a collision with a vehicle. Pedestrian accidents claim the lives of nearly 5,000 individuals every year and injure thousands more. Victims that endure a collision with a vehicle often suffer serious injuries or death due to the impact of the accident. Distracted driving, speeding, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and fatigued driving account for the causes of the majority of all pedestrian accidents.
