According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a pedestrian is killed in a traffic accident every 2 hours, and pedestrian injuries occur every 8 minutes. Pedestrian accidents are particularly tragic because most of them are preventable. Most pedestrian accidents result in catastrophic injuries for pedestrians. As you can imagine, when a vehicle composed of 3000-6000 pounds of steel hits a pedestrian at speeds of 25-50 miles per hour injuries such as traumatic brain injury, serious fractures of arms, legs, pelvis, spine, internal bleeding and significant edema are expected. These injuries are life-long and would require significant medical treatment costing often millions of dollars.
