Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
Pedestrian Accidents occur every day throughout Texas, and one of the most common reasons for these occurrences is distracted driving. When drivers look away from the road for even a few seconds, they risk accidentally hitting a pedestrian that they weren’t aware of. Other causes include poorly lit roads, pedestrians crossing the street in dark clothing, pedestrians not walking within marked crosswalks, and more. All drivers are supposed to remain alert while driving at all times to avoid accidentally hitting a pedestrian who may or may not have the right-of-way. No matter what, drivers are expected to yield.
