Pedestrian Accidents in Austin
Statistics show that 64 percent of all pedestrian fatalities happen on roads that have a 45 mile per hour speed limit. When drivers are driving too fast, they run the risk of accidentally striking pedestrians due to the inability to brake in time. When pedestrians’ body comes in contact with a fast moving vehicle, they’re likely to sustain severe, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries since their bodies are not protected.
