Every year, there are millions of traffic accidents in the United States, many of which are preventable. Many of these preventable accidents involve pedestrians and bicyclists. In a collision with a motor vehicle, cyclists and pedestrians are far more vulnerable to injury than the occupants of cars and trucks because they lack the inherent protection of those vehicles. Every year, thousands of cyclists and pedestrians are killed across the country and right here in Colorado. The Fatality Analysis reporting System (FARS) is dedicated to the study of traffic fatalities and reports some extremely interesting facts about pedestrian and bicycle collisions.

  • In 2009, 4092 pedestrians and 630 cyclists were killed in traffic collisions in America.
  • 47 of those pedestrian fatalities were right here in Colorado.
  • About 50,000 cyclists are injured in traffic accidents annually.
  • The most dangerous time for cyclists in terms of the number of traffic fatalities is from 5 to 9pm, during sunset when drivers of motor vehicles may have their vision impaired by the sun.
  • It may be no surprise that more cyclists are killed during the summer months than other times of year.
  • With both cyclists and pedestrians, the majority of fatalities result from accidents in urban areas away from intersections.
  • Most pedestrians killed in traffic accidents (about 70%) are male

If motor vehicle drivers as well as the pedestrians and cyclists themselves exercise more caution, a great many of these accidents could be avoided. No one expects or deserves to be injured or lose a family member while out for a walk or a bike ride. If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact a pedestrian collision lawyer immediately to discuss your options.
