Pedestrian accidents more often than not can be avoided. A common cause of these unfortunate incidents includes drivers speeding. That is because motorists who speed do not have enough reaction time to stop or yield for pedestrians who have the right of way. Especially now, with roadways emptier than ever across the world, drivers disobeying speed limits is at an all-time high. Thus, pedestrian safety is at an all-time low.
