Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most catastrophic accidents because pedestrians are not protected by gear like helmets or seat belts. These accidents leave pedestrians at risk of serious injury. This is why it is so important for all drivers to keep an eye out for pedestrians and remain cautious. By the same token, pedestrians should always remain vigilant when near roads.
