Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Tips to Avoid Serious Injury Accidents in Kansas City

Comments (0)
In recent reports released by the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 630 people were killed in bicycle accidents in the United States, many right here in Kansas and Missouri. The number of injuries is also staggering, over 50,000 injuries. While many of these victims are older, the average age of victims is 39, child injuries made up 13% of the totals.

It's no secret that bicycle and pedestrian safety is a concern for our Kansas and Missouri Auto Accident and Injury Attorneys. While it is easy to blame motorists for the accidents, we strongly believe fault lies with pedestrians as well as the motorists themselves. We'd like to encourage all pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists alike to always be sure you are watching out for the other. As a pedestrian, never attempt to cross a street, assuming the drivers are aware of your presence.

Remember that distracted driving is the cause of nearly all serious injury auto accidents and this includes bicycle and pedestrian accidents.  Watch our for each other and share the road.

Likewise, all motorists need to do a better job of keeping their attention on the road. Pedestrians and bicyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injury and death in the event of an accident with an automobile. However, motorists tend to depend on the pedestrians to be watching out for them. If both pedestrians and motorists are assuming the other is paying attention, that means no one is doing the safe thing.
