Pedestrian accidents can occur on any type of road. A serious accident can happen suddenly, and accidents that involve pedestrians have a high likelihood of being catastrophic. Pedestrians are vulnerable and not protected by helmets or seatbelts. Drivers must look out for pedestrians, and pedestrians must remain vigilant at all times.
