Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Studies confirm that between the years of 2013 to 2016, approximately 189 accidents involved pedestrians and bicyclists in Tyler. Often times, pedestrians are hit because of distracted drivers, especially if the accident occurs in broad daylight. When drivers look down at their phones for a few seconds, or even at their food, they risk accidentally striking a pedestrian. Conversing with other passengers in one’s car can also be distracting, especially if the driver turns away from the road to make eye contact with their passenger.
