Walking and biking are important forms of transportation in today’s society. Although pedestrian and biking injuries are not as common as motor vehicle accidents, According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis and the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, 15 pedestrians are killed each day across the US and this figure is on the rise since 2008. Similarly, bicycle deaths are on the rise with an increase of 21% from 2014 to 2015.
In addition to walking and biking accidents, pedestrians can be injured entering and exiting buildings. Imagine sitting at a restaurant and having a vehicle crash into the establishment and causing injuries or even deaths to the people as a result!
