Pedestrian Accidents in Queens
Pedestrians in the state of New York have laws that protect them from careless drivers, especially those who obey traffic signals and cross inside of crosswalks where they clearly have the legal right of way over a motorist. Pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to negligent drivers because they have absolutely no protection against a much larger, must faster-moving vehicle.
