Report Issued on Pedestrian Accidents

The Governors Highway Safety Association released information about pedestrian fatalities during the first half of 2010 and the news isn’t good.  Pedestrian deaths increased during the first six months of 2010.  While the increase was slight (less than one percent) it is significant because it comes after four consecutive years of declines in pedestrian fatalities.  It is also significant because overall traffic fatalities decreased during the same time period.

In Pennsylvania, 72 pedestrians died in Pennsylvania pedestrian accidents during the first half of 2010.

The GHSA chairman has suggested that one reason for the pedestrian fatalities across the United States may be because of pedestrian distractions.  We will be watching closely as numbers for the later half of 2010 and 2011 are released.
