Auto-Pedestrian Accidents Archives

Cars, trucks and other motor vehicles have a lot of safety features that help to keep people safe in case of an accident. These include seat belts, air bags, safety glass and more. These features have been tested and are constantly improved to help give people maximum protection while driving.

Drivers have duty to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks

Any large city, like Seattle, has a lot of pedestrian traffic. These pedestrians often come in close contact with motor vehicles as they walk the city streets to get to their destinations. All too often, however, car and trucks do not take care to notice pedestrians. In these situations, serious auto-pedestrian accidents can occur. In these accidents, pedestrians are likely to suffer severe injuries.

"Not an accident in the making" - Really?

Can Seattle's bicyclists ride at night?

Bicycles are a popular choice for many of Seattle's residents. Not only can they be fun, but they provide good exercise and are cheap to maintain. Bicycles, however, like many pedestrians can be put at risk when other drivers do not pay attention to the roadways. Bikes are smaller and can be easy for distracted drivers to miss. In these situations, bicycle accidents can easily lead to serious injury or death since bikes do not provide the same amount of protection that larger vehicles can.

Cars and trucks have to share the road with pedestrians, especially in a large city like Seattle. People often walk, bike or run to get exercise or even as basic transportation. Sidewalks, crosswalks and other protections have been added to increase pedestrians' safety, but auto-pedestrian accidents still occur -- often when drivers fail to notice pedestrians in and around the street.

Washington woman killed in auto-pedestrian accident

Washington streets and highways can be a dangerous place at night, especially for pedestrians. Drivers can be tired, under the influence of drugs or alcohol or distracted. Pedestrians, on the other hand, can be hard to see on dark roads. However, no matter the conditions or time of day, Washington drivers have a duty to be on the lookout for pedestrians in and around the roadways.

17-year-old hit by car in Washington, suffers injuries

Cars and trucks are not the only things on Washington state roadways. Pedestrians and bicyclists also frequent the streets and roads of Seattle as they move from place to place. Drivers need to understand that pedestrians have just as much right to use the roads as cars. However, pedestrians are not blessed with the protection of the steel and glass that drivers are. Therefore, when an accident occurs pedestrians are much more likely than drivers to suffer serious injuries.

Washington residents don't always drive everywhere. Often people enjoy walking from place to place, particularly in the city of Seattle. When people walk, they avoid the costs associated with driving, help the environment and get exercise. As a result, roadways are often designed to safely accommodate both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Teenager killed by car in Seattle

There are many ways that Seattle drivers can be negligent. While most people may think of distracted driving, or driving under the influence when they think of negligent drivers, there are many other common negligent behaviors. These include driving too fast for the conditions, failure to obey traffic rules, failure to yield to the right of way of another vehicle or person and negligent maintenance. In any of these cases, a Washington driver can easily cause a car accident and injure other people.
