Hawaii Pedestrian Accidents
In the United States, pedestrian crashes are usually caused by drivers who fail to follow traffic signals. When it comes to drivers being distracted, texting and driving is becoming a serious problem in the United States, causing millions of accidents and injuries per year. In 2020, more than 7,000 pedestrians were killed in car accidents. The majority of these collisions were caused by careless and negligent drivers.
Pedestrians are usually more severely injured than others when they become involved in motor vehicle collisions due to the fact that when they travel, they are not protected. More than half the time, pedestrians are severely injured when they are involved in auto accidents.
