Pedestrian fatalities continue to rise year after year, despite a decline in passenger vehicle fatality rates throughout the nation. Those traveling on foot are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a collision, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Pedestrians have less protection in the event of a collision, rendering them more vulnerable to fatalities on the road.
