Every year, countless pedestrian accidents occur in the United States. Even though, pedestrians have the right of way in all traffic situations, accidents still occur, frequently due to negligence on the part of automobile operators. Recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports give an all too disturbing account of the number of pedestrian related accidents. Over 60,000 pedestrians are injured in traffic related accidents every year. In addition to this shocking figure, an additional 5,000 pedestrian accidents end in fatalities. These figures equate to a pedestrian being involved in an accident every eight minutes.
