Pedestrian Accidents in California
Walking is a common mode of transportation in California, and many people do so daily to get to and from work, school, and social events. Despite the number of laws that our state has in place to protect pedestrians, we continue to see innocent people suffer serious injuries or be killed as a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent.
Each year in the United States, more than 130,000 pedestrians are killed or seriously injured when they cross streets, even while using designated crosswalks and pedestrian walkways. Distracted driving is a common factor in collisions involving cars and pedestrians.
Distracted driving occurs for many causes, including but not limited to:
- They are messing with their music or navigation systems
- They are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- They’re talking or texting on their cell phones
- They are eating or drinking while driving
