Which vehicle types cause the most pedestrian deaths?

With fatal pedestrian accidents, there are various risk factors to consider, such as the time of day someone is walking or the consumption of alcohol, either by a driver or a pedestrian. However, there are other statistics on pedestrian deaths that may be helpful for drivers and pedestrians to review. For example, statistics can shed light on the different types of vehicles that are involved in fatal pedestrian accidents.

When your child is involved in a crash

Parents often encounter all sorts of challenges as they raise their kids, ranging from issues at school to peer pressure and substance abuse. However, it can be particularly difficult for parents to deal with the aftermath of an accident that their child was involved in. Sometimes, these accidents are caused by young drivers who may not have much experience behind the wheel, but many are also the result of someone else’s negligence, which can be incredibly hard for a parent to deal with. Moreover, your child may have been injured in a wreck as the passenger of someone else’s car. If your child was involved in a motor vehicle collision, you should review your different options.

If you drive an SUV, van, or pickup truck, your vehicle may be particularly dangerous with respect to rollovers, but you should be mindful of the risks that you face regardless of the type of vehicle you drive.

Many drivers are aware of how rain, snow, and ice can affect the road.

Moreover, it is important to keep in mind that rain and snow can cause an accident in other ways as well.

Driving in new places and auto accidents

Some of the more common causes of auto crashes include driving at high speeds, ice on the roads, intoxicated drivers, and drowsiness behind the wheel. However, there are far more causes of motor vehicle collisions that some people ignore or may not realize at all. For example, someone who is driving in a place they have never been may be more likely to cause an accident due to unfamiliarity with the roads.
