Pedestrian traffic deaths on the rise across the United States

The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) estimates 6,721 pedestrian deaths in the United States in 2020. This represents a 4.8% increase over 2019.

Furthermore, GHSA identified the following pedestrian safety trends:

  • Pedestrian traffic deaths are rising at a higher rate than all other types of traffic deaths: The number of pedestrian traffic deaths rose 46% between 2010 and 2019. Comparatively, the number of all other types of traffic deaths increased 5% during the time frame.
  • Pedestrian traffic deaths occur most often after dark: The number of drivers striking pedestrians after dark rose 54% from 2010 to 2019. In contrast, the number of drivers involved in pedestrian traffic accidents during the day increased by 16%.
  • Alcohol is a leading factor in pedestrian traffic deaths: Alcohol impairment by a driver and/or pedestrian was a factor in nearly half of all pedestrian traffic deaths.

Pedestrians can keep an eye on the road to watch for cars and other potential hazards that can otherwise cause accidents, but there is only so much a pedestrian can do to get out of the way of a vehicle about to run them over.
