Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most devastating vehicle accidents as they can leave pedestrian with serious injuries. Pedestrians are not protected by helmets or seat belts, and they are exposed completely. It is vital for drivers to remember to watch out for pedestrians and for pedestrians to remain vigilant.
