Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Sadly, thousands of pedestrians are killed annually in Texas every single year. When pedestrians are walking on highways late at night, they risk drivers being on the road under the influence or drowsy, which puts them at risk of accidentally getting hit. If pedestrians are walking on the highway wearing dark clothes and the road is poorly lit, they also run the risk of accidentally getting hit. Because it’s not uncommon for drivers to walk on the highway after their car becomes disabled, it’s important for drivers to be very mindful on the road.
