Hawaii Pedestrian Collisions
When an area is used frequently by both drivers and pedestrians, the odds of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle increase dramatically. It only takes a single reckless or negligent driver to critically injure or even end the life of a pedestrian.
Even though a very small percentage of pedestrian-involved accidents are committed with malice, most of them are the result of everyday driver negligence.
The most common forms of driver negligence in Hawaii include the following:
- Driving while under the influence
- Distracted drivers
- Disregarding traffic signs or other driving laws
- Failing to yield at crosswalks
- Lack of turn signals
- Failing to drive appropriately in bad weather
- Failing to show due care when children are present
