New York City pedestrian accidents occurred at an alarming rate this year. Just during the first trimester of 2019 alone, 51 pedestrians, 13 cyclists 11 passengers and 28 motorists died in auto accidents. A driver’s negligence can seriously injure pedestrians, some of the most common reasons being:
- Distracted driving(like cellphone use or eating)
- Disobeying traffic signals or signs
- Failing to signal when turning
- Failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians at crosswalks
- Neglecting weather or traffic conditions
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
No matter what precautions you take, you cannot always protect yourself from a negligent driver and accidents can occur.
