Child suffers critical injuries in California pedestrian accident

Most pedestrians know of the potential dangers that they could experience while walking on or near California roads. As such, they often go to great lengths to protect themselves, including ensuring that they only cross streets at designated crosswalks when a pedestrian light indicates it is time to cross. Unfortunately, even then a pedestrian accident can occur when drivers in the area fail to obey traffic signs.

For example, reports indicate that a 12-year-old boy was recently injured at an intersection in California. The accident allegedly happened when a motorist attempted an illegal right turn. The boy was apparently in an intersection with a pedestrian scramble, which stops all traffic and allows pedestrians to cross in all directions.

Because driving is so commonplace for many drivers in California and across the country, it may be easy to take for granted the variety of different traffic laws put into place to ensure that everyone can safely use the country's roadways. Unfortunately, failure to obey traffic lights, for example, can come with tragic consequences. In fact, a recent study shows that the number of fatalities related to drivers running red lights is at the highest level in a decade.

According to reports, the number of people killed across the country by drivers who failed to obey traffic lights was 939 in 2017, the last year for which data is available.

Wrongful death: 4 motorcyclists killed in California crash

Many people would argue that drivers of traditional motor vehicles have a safety advantage over other types of users -- such as motorcyclists -- because of the size differences and physical protections that traditional vehicles provide. Unfortunately, a collision between a sport utility vehicle and a motorcycle, for example, can easily have devastating consequences. In fact, four motorcyclists in California were recently killed, reportedly after they were struck by an SUV.
