Pedestrian Injuries Increase in 2010

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on January 3, 2012

The recently released report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration brought good news to many; road deaths in general fell significantly as motor vehicle crashes became less frequent. However, even in light of recent data, one form of transportation is still becoming more and more dangerous: walking.

The report showed that pedestrian injuries from car crashes has jumped 4.2% since 2009 with a total of about 70,000 pedestrian deaths in 2010 alone. Though the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not identified a specific cause for the increase in pedestrian deaths, some are guessing that poor road conditions coupled with an increase in pedestrian transportation could be the cause.

Dallas is a very walkable city, and many individuals choose alternative methods of transportation over driving. Regardless if you’re walking, biking, or driving, it’s important to remain aware of your surroundings. Only cross streets in cross-walks, and if you’re walking at night, be sure to wear brightly colored clothing so drivers can see you. If you have been injured as a pedestrian by a negligent driver, contact W. T. Johnson today.
