Babysitter and toddler struck in pedestrian accident in Phoenix

Arizona families often enjoy taking a stroll with their young ones to enjoy the weather and get some fresh air. Although this is considered a relatively safe and enjoyable activity, families should be aware of some of the risks that they might encounter. This is especially true if they are walking near or on roadways. Even when pedestrians are walking on sidewalks, a distracted or negligent driver could collide with a pedestrian, causing an auto-pedestrian accident.

For some drivers in Arizona, their early morning commute starts much earlier than most. Traveling during the early morning hour sometimes means that it is dark outside. Furthermore, drivers at that hour might be fatigued from driving through the night or tired from waking up early. These factors create added dangers and risks for the drivers and could lead to an automobile crash impacting other drivers on the roadway.

No matter where it is located, Arizona's roadways can be dangerous. This is especially true when people are traveling on bike or foot near or on the roadways. Pedestrians are often at risk of harm because they are unable to move out of the way of an errant vehicle. Furthermore, a person may not be able to withstand the impact of a vehicle, especially if it is traveling fast. This is why it is important for drivers to always be aware of their surroundings and watch out for pedestrians traveling near or on the road.

Roadways are often the stage of tragedy. Most drivers and passengers do not expect that they will be involved in a car accident because most happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Even when travelers take precaution and wear their seatbelt and practice safe driving, this does not protect them from negligent drivers. A driver who fails to uphold a duty to drive safely could cause a serious or even fatal accident affecting numerous people.
