No matter what time of year or what type of weather strikes in Arizona, residents and visitors frequently travel by foot. For some this is a safe, economical and convenient way to get around. Although it is usually safe for pedestrians to travel near busy roadways, this could also be a major risk that could result in a serious pedestrian accident. If a driver is traveling too fast, fails to stop or yield at traffic signs or is distracted, the driver could collide with a pedestrian resulting in serious injuries or even death.
