Pedestrians are the most vulnerable parties on our roads in the state of California. This means that they are more likely to become seriously injured or killed in the event of an accident. In 2021 alone, it was reported that approximately 470 pedestrians lost their lives in accidents throughout California. Drivers are supposed to pay close attention to the roads around them so that pedestrian accidents can be prevented. However, these accidents still occur when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them.
