The Shocking Statistics of Pedestrian v. Auto Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,743 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes and another 76,000 pedestrians were injured in 2012. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours and a pedestrian injury every 7 minutes. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be killed in a car accident.pedestrian

The injuries that can result from these accidents can range from minor bruises and scratches to more serious and life changing injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries and spinal chord injuries, to even death.

Distracted Drivers Means More Accidents

Modern technology distracts drivers more than ever. Smart phones, texting, and emails are just some of the culprits for the cause of serious accidents. The National Safety Counsel’s annual injury and fatality reports found that cellphones cause 26% of the nation’s accidents. Other distractions include eating, drinking, grooming, using a navigation system, or talking to other passengers in the car.

These distractions make it even more important for pedestrians to be vigilant of moving vehicles. Some tips that pedestrians should remember while on the street include:

  • Staying on the sidewalk
  • Using crosswalks
  • Avoiding high traffic roads
  • Children should always hold the hands of an adult while crossing the street
