According to the latest reports (2015) from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) close to 100,000 pedestrians were killed or suffered injuries in collisions with motor vehicles.
Studies show that drivers are more distracted than ever, especially by using technology on their cell phone for social media, texting, headphones etc. The use of technology and mobile devices are creating more and more dangerous conditions for other cars as well as pedestrians.
Pedestrian injuries are usually severe when struck by a vehicle. Spine injuries, head and neck injuries, paralysis, and broken bones, even death occur frequently.
