Pedestrian Accidents

According to statistics from the U.S. National Transportation Library, more than 78,000 pedestrians were injured in traffic accidents in 2000, and another 4,739 died. On average, these statistics represent a pedestrian death every 110 minutes and an injury every 9 minutes.
Many pedestrian accidents are a direct result of driver negligence, including:

  • Inattentive or pre-occupied drivers
  • Drivers who fail to observe posted speed limits
  • Drivers who fail to observe a pedestrian’s right of way
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs


Most pedestrian fatalities occur at night, in normal weather conditions at non-intersection locations in urban areas. As might be expected, alcohol use on the part of the driver or the pedestrian also plays a major role.

In 2006, 47% of fatal traffic crashes involved alcohol
34% of fatally injured pedestrians had elevated blood alcohol levels
Among the drivers, 13% had elevated blood alcohol levels
6% of those crashes involved both drivers and pedestrians with elevated blood alcohol levels
