New York Pedestrian Accidents
New York pedestrian crashes happen all too often. Preserving pedestrian safety in the Empire State has become a severe issue, to such a degree that the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee has implemented awareness campaigns to help people pay more attention to pedestrian safety regulations in New York.
Thousands of pedestrians are hurt in collisions across the state yearly. A large percentage of these crashes occur in New York.
Pedestrians travel with little to no protection constantly. This means that every time they travel while walking, running, or riding their bike, they are at serious risk of suffering injuries that could debilitate them for lengthy periods of time, if not the rest of their lives. While actions like jaywalking can undoubtedly cause accidents, most pedestrian crashes are caused by motorists who fail to yield the right-of-way.
