Pedestrian Accidents in California
Pedestrian accidents take the lives of hundreds of people in California every year. Thousands more are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever. There are many reasons why pedestrian accidents are so common in California. The state’s large population means there are more people walking on its streets and highways. Additionally, California’s mild climate means that people are more likely to walk outside all year round.
But perhaps the biggest reason for the high number of pedestrian accidents in California is the heavy use of automobile transportation. With wide streets and an abundance of parking, cars are extremely common in California. This can make it difficult for pedestrians to find safe places to walk, and drivers may not be looking out for them.
If you’re a pedestrian in California, it’s important to be aware of the dangers around you and take steps to stay safe. Wear bright clothing or reflective gear when walking at night, use crosswalks when available, and always be cautious when crossing busy roads. By taking these precautions, you can help reduce your risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident.
