Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Fortunately, statistics revealed that the number of pedestrian fatalities in Texas decreased by 4 percent in 2018 compared to 2017. Although this is great news, over 3,000 pedestrians still lost their lives that year. To continue to prevent pedestrians from losing their lives, the government is working to continue to educate communities on safety protocols, as well as continue to create safer sidewalks and crosswalks for pedestrians.
