Injuries occur primarily in no-zones around trucks

No-zones refers to the areas around a vehicle which you should avoid, or bar avoidance, maintain extra vigilance. Every vehicle has a series of no-zones, but tractor-trailer trucks are notorious for the size of their no-zones and their dangers. Semi-trucks are large, lumbering beasts that can easily crush most passenger cars. It is thus crucial that you proceed cautiously around these vehicles when you interact with them on the road.

Pedestrian accidents on highways

Pedestrian accidents are almost always severe, but they are deadly or even fatal if they occur on an interstate highway. Cars and trucks travel at much faster speeds on these highways, therefore, it is far more likely that a person will suffer severe or fatal injuries if they are struck by a car. This post will go over how these accidents happen and what you can do to avoid them.

Some of the major causes of pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians can be defined as people travelling on foot, whether they are walking or running. Pedestrians are under a great amount of risk while they go out and about near roads. According to the figures, 150,000 pedestrians were involved in auto-accidents in 2013 across the country.

We start to become numb to them; to the human beings who lived full lives and had families before they were snuffed out by a drunk driver.
