Pedestrian Accidents in Austin
In 2018, pedestrian fatalities were responsible for 42 percent of all deaths in Houston. Most pedestrian accidents occur in areas that have a speed limit of 45 miles per hour or higher. The leading cause of these accidents is almost always distracted driving. When a light turns green and a driver makes a right turn without yielding for pedestrians, there’s a chance that they will accidentally strike someone who is crossing the street, especially if the driver is looking down at a phone. If a driver is traveling at high speed, there’s a chance that the injuries sustained will be critical.
