When pedestrians fall victim to motor vehicle accidents, the end results are generally catastrophic. Unfortunately, many pedestrians suffer serious personal injury because some drivers don't understand or observe the rules of the road that govern the right of way at crosswalks, stoplights, stop signs or drivers who are speeding.
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Florida ranks as the second most hazardous state in the U.S. for pedestrians. In 2011 the NHTSA reported that Florida accounted for 11% of all U.S. pedestrian fatalities and 17.4% of all U.S. bicycle fatalities.
