What are the causes of pedestrian traffic deaths?
The causes of pedestrian traffic deaths can be a number of things, such as:
- Alcohol-related pedestrian deaths – many people are astonished to find out that in accidents involving pedestrian deaths, the pedestrian may be more than twice as likely to be inebriated as the driver. As an example: between the years of 2005 and 2014, 34 percent of pedestrians killed were legally drunk, compared to 14 percent of drivers.
- Approximately 50 percent of pedestrian deaths for those between 21 and 44 years of age had blood alcohol contents of .08 percent and higher.
