Pedestrian Accidents in Yonkers
Drivers who are not fully focused on the road and their immediate surroundings frequently do not see pedestrians until it is too late if at all. Drivers who are otherwise occupied, under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, or driving too fast usually miss obvious roadside signage and stop lights. They are also less likely to be aware of features such as crosswalks and driveways. It is important that careless and negligent motorists be brought to account for their misdeeds.
