Understanding Pedestrian Accidents
The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) conducted a study of over 7,000 accidents which resulted in pedestrian injury or fatality and identified the causes.
The DOT found several key statistics, such as:
- Pedestrians made up over half of the traffic fatalities in the city
- Driver inattention was cited in over a third of the serious or fatal crashes examined
- Over a quarter of fatal pedestrian crashes resulted from a driver failing to yield
- Male drivers were involved in over 80% of serious pedestrian crashes
- Nearly 80% of the accidents examined involved private vehicles rather than taxis, buses, or trucks
