Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads since they have no protection from harm in the event of an accident involving a large vehicle. This also means that pedestrians are more likely to become seriously injured or even killed in the event of an accident. Hundreds of pedestrians actually lose their lives every year as a result of pedestrian accidents within the state. In 2018 alone, in fact, it is estimated that approximately 893 pedestrians were killed in fatal car accidents and many others were seriously injured.
