What Are Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents?

An accident involving a pedestrian can happen anywhere. When school is out for the afternoon and the roads are filled with students, drivers may not be aware of the number of people that are walking across streets or on sidewalks. In a populated downtown area, drivers may be negligent when looking out for those who are walking near them. In either event, some of the common causes that result in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Excessive speeding in densely populated areas. It is important to take note of and obey the speed limit so that you are able to quickly take control of your vehicle in an emergency situation
  • Ignoring signage for drivers. Many drivers in Phoenix find themselves continually in a rush. Whether they are needing to get across town in order to make an appointment, or they simply want to beat rush hour by getting ahead of other drivers, many drivers will ignore the street signs and lights that are there to help protect pedestrians. While a driver may be looking to beat a red light by speeding through it
  • Not paying attention to their surroundings. A driver should be sure to have their attention focused on the road at all times. Just a split-second of not paying attention to the surroundings could result in serious injuries or even death with a pedestrian. In some cases, a driver may also be driving negligently by texting, using their phone, adjusting the radio, or simply dozing off while behind the wheel.
