Pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, which means that they are more likely to become seriously injured or even lose their lives when one occurs. Pedestrians are killed more commonly in Florida accidents than in many other states, as more pedestrians hit our roads every single year. From January to June 2019, it was estimated that approximately 268 pedestrians were killed in Florida accidents.
