Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2017, nearly 4,000 people lost their lives on Texas roads. Texas laws state that all drivers must yield to the right of way of oncoming pedestrians, whether they’re in a marked or unmarked crosswalk. This law applies to all vehicle that are in the same half of the roadway as pedestrians or if a pedestrian is approaching their half of the roadway from the opposite side of the street. Drivers have a public duty to remain alert at the wheel at all times. When they fail to do so, they put themselves and everyone else in their vicinity at risk of sustaining serious injuries or possibly losing their lives.
