Pedestrian Injuries in Hawaii
The Hawaii Islands are a prominent destination for tourists from all over the world. Unfortunately, this causes them to experience more than their fair share of pedestrian accidents.
When any location is used heavily by both pedestrians and motor vehicles, the odds of a pedestrian being struck are considerably greater. It takes just a single reckless driver to critically injure or kill a pedestrian.
Even though a very tiny percentage of pedestrian injuries are intentionally inflicted by drivers, most of them are the result of simple driver negligence. The most common kinds of negligent drivers in Hawaii include those who:
- Are going faster than the speed limit
- Are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Are distracted
- Ignore traffic lights or signs
- Fail to observe crosswalks
- Do not use their turn indicators
- Fail to exercise safety precautions during inclement weather
- Fail to exercise due care in places where children may be present
