Philadelphia Motorists Must Drive Carefully

Drivers have a duty to act cautiously around those traveling on foot. For example, Pennsylvania law requires motorists to yield to a pedestrian crossing at an intersection when traffic signals are not available or operating. That law applies to pedestrians in both marked or unmarked crosswalks.

Why Do So Many Pedestrian Accidents Happen in Philadelphia?

Motor vehicle crashes kill more than 30 pedestrians and bicyclists each year in Philadelphia. More than 2,200 crashes result in injuries. Tragically, pedestrian fatalities have increased 15.6 percent from 2009 to 2013.

In many parts of the city, day and night, there are often many pedestrians traveling near motor vehicles. Crashes involving pedestrians happen for many reasons. Drivers may be confused about who has the right of way. In some cases, a driver stops to yield to a person crossing the road; another vehicle approaching from behind passes the stopped vehicle, striking the pedestrian.

Driveways, parking lots, and other shared spaces are also dangerous for pedestrians. Driver distractions can prevent motorists from seeing a pedestrian in time. No matter the cause, a driver’s negligence can kill or catastrophically injure a person. But their carelessness cannot go unanswered.
