When a pedestrian becomes involved in a crash with a large and heavy passenger vehicle of any kind, they usually sustain severe or even fatal injuries. Pedestrian travel may be a convenient and cheap way to get from point A to point B; however, the price pedestrians pay when they become involved in traffic crashes is greater than most. On average, over 5,000 pedestrians lose their lives per year in traffic collisions that happen throughout the United States. Sadly, the majority of the pedestrian crashes reported in the US are caused by the actions of negligent drivers.
