Top 5 distracted pedestrian stories

When do most pedestrian
accidents happen?
Pedestrian Accident Graph
Well, pedestrians are at risk for serious injuries anytime they are involved in an accident, but there are studies that show that some demographics are more likely to be involved in pedestrian crashes than others. In the U.S., a pedestrian is killed every two hours from an accident. Males account for 69 percent of the pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. Over two-thirds of pedestrian crashes or pedestrian accidents occur at night. One out of five pedestrians that are killed in an accident are over 65. Young pedestrians, meaning those under 16, are more likely to be killed between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and November and December are the deadliest months
10 pedestrian safety tips
What is the chance of a pedestrian surviving an accident at 40 mph?
Cars
The chance of a pedestrian surviving an accident at 40 mph is very slim. Only about 10 percent of those hit at a speed of 40 mph or higher will survive. Chances of survival increases drastically the slower a vehicle is traveling. For example, the chance of survival of a pedestrian hit at the speed of 30 mph goes up approximately 50 percent. So, it all depends upon the speed that the vehicle is traveling that strikes the pedestrian, but 40 mph, or greater, is a very small chance of survival.
What is a pedestrian
accident?
Pedestrian Accidents
According to State Traffic Control Law, a pedestrian is defined as any person afoot that is required to obey the instructions of any traffic control device or police officer. A pedestrian includes people on foot, or on bicycles, or on non-motorized vehicles, and they are required by law to use a sidewalk when provided, and they are not permitted to walk on a paved road. And if there is no sidewalk provided, a pedestrian is required to walk only on the shoulder of the left side of the road, facing traffic, approaching vehicles or oncoming vehicles from the opposite direction.The report usually includes the officer's conclusions about who's at fault. It'll include witnesses’ names, statements that they may have given about the accident and how it occurred. It'll detail whether the pedestrian was in a crosswalk, or did the driver run a stop sign, or disobey some sort of traffic signage? It'll tell you if, for instance, a pedestrian darted out from between parked cars, instead of crossing at an intersection. So, when we're looking to determine fault for a pedestrian accident, we start with the police report. We examine what's contained in it. We look toward the witnesses and any witness statements that may be obtained. At some points in time, there may be video cameras or surveillance cameras that are located at or near a scene that may contain an actual video of the accident. And so, we look to all of these different sources to help to determine who is at fault for the pedestrian accident.READ MORE
Where do most child pedestrian accidents
happen?
Pedestrian
Well, as most child pedestrian accidents occur – that was children being those younger than 16 – are likely to occur between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Obviously, it's a time when kids are out of school, and so they're out and playing, so if they're near, and they're playing near roadways, near parks, or other places, or schools where children normally would be playing after school, or at after-school-related activities, or walking home – those are common places where a child pedestrian accident would happen.
