Pedestrian Accident Study
Fatalities resulting from pedestrian accidents account for a larger portion of all crashes today than ever before. According to a recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 25% of all traffic fatalities in New Jersey are pedestrian fatalities. The nationwide data paints a broader picture in which pedestrians are injured every eight minutes on average. These alarming statistics show no sign of yielding as the study confirms that reported pedestrian fatalities rose 4% from 2009 to 2010. Factors Contributing to Pedestrian Accidents The NHTSA study found that pedestrian accidents are more common in certain age groups than others. Research compiled in the study compares various age demographics and their respective likelihood to be involved in a pedestrian accident. Elderly pedestrians comprise close to 20% of pedestrian fatalities and an estimated 11% of all pedestrian injuries from auto accidents in 2010. Children also form a large segment of pedestrian injuries with 23% of all injuries affecting children fifteen years old and younger. The study also presents findings relating gender to pedestrian injury rates. Auto accidents, in 2010, led to a fatality rate of 1.94 and .85 for males and females respectively. Researchers did not speculate as to why the rate of male pedestrians being involved in fatal auto accidents is more than double that of females. Another important factor analyzed in the study is time of day and how it relates to both pedestrian and auto accidents.
