How can pedestrian accidents occur?

Drivers can be unaware of their surroundings on the road that can cause accidents to occur. These drivers can commit various acts, such as traffic violations, that contribute to pedestrian accidents. If a driver is not aware of their surroundings and they are speeding, they can accidentally strike a pedestrian. These accidents can be avoided if drivers were more aware of their surroundings and refrained from violating traffic laws. They should not be distracted in any way. They should not be using their cell phones while operating a motor vehicle or they can be distracted, causing more opportunities for accidents to occur. They should be adhering to speed limits so that they do not risk the failure of stopping short to miss hitting a pedestrian on the road.
