The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 7,388 pedestrians were killed and an additional 60,000 were injured on U.S. roads in 2021. Drivers distracted by texting and phone calls, impaired or fatigued drivers, increasingly busy roads and other factors have made crossing even a seemingly calm and lightly-traveled street an often dangerous proposition.
Given the lack of protection for pedestrians, fatalities are far too common and serious injuries are a regular occurrence among those walking alongside roads in the U.S. Being struck by any vehicle, even a bicycle, can lead to serious, life-changing injuries or death. Injuries to pedestrians are all too often left permanently injured, disabled and living a forever changed life. A loss of physical abilities or cognitive impairments can forever change the course of one’s life, career, relationships and ability to lead a meaningful and productive life, not to mention possible financial ruin from hospital, rehabilitation and long-term or lifelong care.
