Few pedestrians crossing the street or walking with traffic consider themselves part of the stream of cars, trucks, and motorcycles passing them. But unfortunately, pedestrians frequently are seriously injured or killed in traffic accidents in Arizona.
Pedestrians can help avoid accidents by crossing the street in crosswalks, looking both ways in traffic and walking on sidewalks. However, even when pedestrians are vigilant, they may still be injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver.
Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
Children are at particular risk for injury while playing in or crossing streets. In school zones, drivers may not observe the posted reduced speed restrictions. In other cases, drivers may be distracted and not anticipate a child suddenly entering the street, even if there are many other children nearby playing.
