Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Tampa FL
Because there is little that can be done to shield pedestrians from the entire impact of a collision, they are particularly vulnerable. Walkers are especially vulnerable in Florida, which has a reputation for being a hazardous place for pedestrians, particularly in cities. Pedestrians are killed or wounded in car accidents at an increasing rate each year, despite the fact that overall traffic fatality rates have declined. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than drivers to be killed in a car collision, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
