Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most severe accidents that occur on roads. Pedestrians are not protected by a vehicle, and they do not have any protective gear on. Impact with a vehicle can cause severe injuries that can have negative consequences. Drivers must follow traffic laws and remember to look out for pedestrians.
