Pedestrian Collisions in Florida
Along with distracted driving, a high rate of pedestrian fatalities are caused by alcohol use on the part of either the pedestrian or the driver. The majority of critical pedestrian accidents take place in metropolitan areas after dark. Most of these accidents also occur mid-block instead of in intersections. This suggests that most pedestrian fatalities happen due to an inadequate number of crosswalks and traffic control tools.
