At Titans Legal our attorneys understand that pedestrians are often disregarded and overlooked by drivers. Therefore, resulting in negligent accidents or deaths involving pedestrians. With Dallas and many other cities, roads are primarily designed for driving and therefore not pedestrian friendly, so it’s not surprising that Texas ranked as the third leading state in pedestrian fatalities as of 2020.
Danger zones for pedestrians include:
- school zones
- parking garages
- parking lots
- Anywhere people travel on foot and have to interact with vehicles
School Zone Accidents
School zones are especially high-risk areas for pedestrians due to a combination of child pedestrians and negligent drivers. Drivers may speed or text and drive in school zones, failing to notice crossing children. Child pedestrians are prone to unexpected behaviors such as darting out from between parked cars or crossing the street without looking for oncoming traffic. Together, these hazards can lead to deadly pedestrian collisions.
Parking Lot Accidents
Parking lot accidents also commonly involve pedestrians. Grocery stores and shopping centers in Albuquerque often see thousands of pedestrians daily. Drivers must maneuver slowly, safely and with 100% awareness in parking lots to avoid collisions. Distracted and negligent drivers may back into pedestrians, cut off crossing shoppers, or strike pedestrians walking to their vehicles. Unsafe parking lot designs could contribute to these types of accidents.
