Pedestrian accidents can be some of the most catastrophic accidents because pedestrians are not protected by safety gear. These accidents tend to put pedestrians at risk of serious injuries. This is why it is vital for all drivers to look out for pedestrians and share the road with them. Pedestrians must also remember to remain aware and cautious when near roads.
