A pedestrian is anyone who is not driving a motorized vehicle on the road. Accidents involving pedestrians are extremely dangerous. They are more serious than other types of accidents because a vehicle can cause significant damage to an unprotected person even when moving slowly. Almost all pedestrian accidents result in injuries, and many are fatal.
