Needless to say, a pedestrian can sustain severe, life-altering/life-threatening injuries as they are not protected as is a driver in a motor vehicle. At worst, a pedestrian fatality can occur. Often, drivers are in a hurry to beat traffic or a traffic light, causing them to enter and or drive through crosswalks and intersections without checking for pedestrians who, except in limited circumstances, have the right-of way. Many drivers fail to stop for pedestrians at or in a crosswalk despite signs requiring drivers to stop and yield. As a pedestrian, it is best not to assume a driver will do the right thing. However, even careful pedestrians employing safe crossing practices can be struck by a negligently operated vehicle.
