Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Generally speaking, most pedestrian accidents are caused by motorist negligence
or failure to follow traffic laws. This is especially true in urban areas,
like Atlanta, where there is a steady flow of sidewalk traffic and intersections,
crosswalks, and other stop-and-go road features are common.
- Some of the major causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Fatigued driving
- Unsafe turns at intersections
Distracted driving (talking on the phone,
texting while driving, etc.)
- Failing to obey traffic signs and lights
- Failing to signal a turn or lane change
- Failing to yield for pedestrians
Impaired driving (DUI, drugged driving)
