Pedestrians are the fall guys along the roadway as every year; the cause of around 4,743 pedestrians’ death in the U.S. is vehicular accident; aside from the 70,000+ pedestrians that are taken to the ER for injuries. Mathematically speaking, this is an average of one pedestrian’s death due to a crash every 2 hours, and the cause of pedestrian injury per 7 minutes. Being a pedestrian, you are 1.5 times more likely to die from a car crash for each trip than a passenger in a vehicle.
