The “hit and run” epidemic has infested Los Angeles County.
It probably shouldn’t be considered a surprise that Los Angeles County has the highest number of pedestrian deaths in the United States, according to a new analysis by the Center for Auto Insurance. The organization noted National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data for 2014 that concluded that Los Angeles was, at best, the eon killing campfor walkers.
Had with 281 deaths. The second place was Maricopa, Arizona. Phoenix saw 94 deaths. Harris County, Houston, saw 93. San Diego, our neighbor to the south, came in fourth with 84 fatalities. And Miami had 82. San Bernardino came in sixth with 66, and Riverside came in 14th with 51. So three of the six worst counties in the nation for pedestrians are in Southern California.
Sixty-five percent of pedestrian victims who have suffered fatal crashes in the Golden State are men, the organization says. The average age of a victim is 46.
Pedestrian deaths are almost always avoidable, and it is up to all people, both as a driver and a pedestrian to play by the rules responsibly, maintain composure and use common sense, and not to drink and drive at the same time, always look both ways. every time you are going to cross a street (completely rule out the use of headphones), and resisting the urge to drive too fast on the long and tempting roads of the country.
If you have suffered a pedestrian accident with serious injuries due to the negligence or recklessness of another driver, you have the right to seek compensation that covers your every cost, from medical to lost wages and other damages.
