Pedestrian accidents: Driver flees after striking pedestrian

Pedestrian deaths have risen sharply in recent years across Hawaii. Pedestrians typically utilize sidewalks very close to busy streets. With more and more vehicles on the road these days, pedestrian accidents become almost inevitable. Statistics say a pedestrian is killed every 90 minutes in the United States.

Pedestrian accidents: Traveling by foot can be dangerous

Walking is a popular and trendy way to get around in the state of Hawaii. More and more people are choosing to walk in order to save money and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The climate is wonderful here year-round, which makes traveling by foot very enjoyable. However, there are also more vehicles on the road than ever before, and more foot traffic along crowded streets is equating to an increase in pedestrian accidents.

Always remain alert and focused to prevent pedestrian accidents

In the city of Honolulu, pedestrians are literally everywhere. Those who live and work in the city often choose walking over driving as their main source of transportation. Not only is walking more practical and economical, it is a great way to stay in shape while enjoying the wonderful climate in Hawaii. However, increased foot traffic along crowded city streets could mean more pedestrian accidents.

Congested Honolulu streets can lead to pedestrian accidents

These days in Hawaii, pedestrian safety is a major concern. Honolulu, in particular, has seen a dramatic increase in pedestrian accidents in recent years. The city of Honolulu is in the midst of a population boom.

Despite public awareness, pedestrian accidents continue to rise

In recent years, pedestrian deaths have risen in Hawaii and across the United States. The word "pedestrian" brings to mind images of a person who only travels by foot. However, almost every person is a pedestrian at some point every day. Rising numbers of pedestrians combined with rising numbers of vehicles in Hawaii cities unfortunately equates to more pedestrian accidents. According to recent statistics, a pedestrian is killed every 90 minutes in a traffic crash on average in the United States.

Officials launch safety campaign to combat pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian safety is a main area of concern in cities across the country. Especially in Hawaii, streets are becoming crowded and dangerous as more and more drivers take to roadways. According to records, 22 pedestrians have been killed in Hawaii this year. In an effort to bring awareness to pedestrian safety and prevent further pedestrian accidents, state officials have designated the month of August as Pedestrian Safety Month.
