Pedestrian accidents: Yet another fatal accident reported

For a lot of Hawaii citizens, walking is the main form of transportation. Pedestrians are literally everywhere in towns and cities across the state. As populations continue to increase, more and more pedestrians are put in harm's way as they attempt to navigate around streets bustling with traffic. In an alarming and disturbing trend, pedestrian accidents have drastically increased across Hawaii this year. Pedestrians have little to no protection, so the vast majority of these accidents end in serious injuries or death.

This has been a tragic and deadly year so far for pedestrians in Hawaii. To provide some context, pedestrian fatalities in Hawaii are up over 500 percent this year versus last year, according to recent statistics. What could be causing this dramatic rise in pedestrian accidents? Increased vehicular traffic as well as inattentive behavior are two primary causes. Regardless of the cause, a high percentage of accidents involving pedestrians prove to be fatal.
