Pedestrian accidents are dangerous for a number of reasons. As a pedestrian, you are completely exposed to the force of a vehicle. You do not have the luxury of airbags and seatbelts for protection. This not only increases the chances of physical injuries but also the psychological trauma that accompanies these accidents.
