Pedestrian accidents take place more commonly in California than in many other states throughout the U.S. In 2018, it was reported that approximately 893 pedestrians were killed in accidents and many others sustained injuries. The reason why these accidents tend to be so severe is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm.
