pedestrian-1In the United States, a pedestrian is injured in a vehicular accident approximately every eight minutes, and another one is killed every 113 minutes.

Unfortunately, children 15 years old and below make up about 39% of all injured pedestrians. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, about half of all pedestrian accidents involving children often occur between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon, when the children are just getting out of school. Other accidents involving children often occur on Halloween, as they are dressed in costume and may not be visible to drivers in the nighttime.

The Federal Highway Administration states that the elderly are also particularly vulnerable to pedestrian accidents due to their slower reflexes. One year, reports show that 4,000 elderly were injured in pedestrian accidents, resulting in approximately 700 fatalities.
