Pedestrian Accidents Involving Hit-And-Run Drivers On Madison Street in Louisville KY

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Pedestrians can be put in real danger when walking along narrow Louisville streets, especially at night when lanes may not be properly lit. A driver not paying full attention to the road can miss spotting a defenseless person on foot and proceed into a dangerous collision.

Drivers who don’t remain on the scene after a pedestrian accident can leave the victim hurt and in the road. By fleeing the scene and not calling 911, this unthinkable act also delays the medical response a victim urgently needs.

Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Accidents In Crescent Hill In Louisville KY

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Parts of Louisville provide pedestrians with less than safe paths to get where they need to go. Narrow sidewalks and with some intersections not equipped with full crosswalks, anyone on foot can fall victim to the constant rush of traffic.

The threat level rises as the sun fades when drivers should display extra caution for any pedestrians traveling nearby. Sadly, low visibility doesn’t mean drivers offer the extra attention needed to spot those on foot. A driver’s mistake can lead to an unprotected pedestrian taking a powerful impact from a vehicle and suffering very serious injuries.

Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Accident Dangers on Preston Highway In Louisville KY

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Pedestrians moving across Louisville can find it very challenging to get anywhere without having to cross multiple lanes in front of the rush of traffic. Crosswalks can be in place, but they often ask people on foot to cross six or more lanes in just a few dozen seconds.

The path can be dangerous and is only made more hazardous by careless drivers who should be paying more attention to what’s in front of them. A driver can approach a poorly lit intersection and be required to stay alert for the presence of any pedestrians.

Pedestrian Accidents on South Broadway In Lexington KY

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Pedestrians in Lexington already face the heightened risk of an impact from a car no matter what part of the city they travel in. Distracted drivers can make any walk a frightening experience when they proceed without properly monitoring the road in front of them.

That risk for anyone on foot increases exponentially when drivers choose to get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Their judgment is impaired and spotting the profile of a pedestrian in a crosswalk or anywhere along a sidewalk can become nearly impossible.

Hit-And-Run Accidents in Shively – What Families Should Know

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Pedestrians in Shively must often put their safety at extreme risk simply to travel a short distance. They might have to travel a half-mile or more to the nearest intersection only to find there’s no crosswalk provided.

The dangers for those on foot only multiply at night when streets aren’t lit properly and when already distracted drivers show the same lack of caution as they do during the day. A glance at a phone or a radio dial can cause a driver to miss seeing someone crossing the road after sundown.

Pedestrian Accidents on Breckenridge Lane In Louisville KY

By Kaufman and Stigger on

 

Pedestrians in Louisville need better sidewalks and more crosswalks to remain safe when they travel the city. In busy sections of Louisville, people on foot can go half-a-mile in any direction and not find a safe crosswalk available to them.

These basic safety measures are needed in all sections of the city because of the lack of protection pedestrians have when they must expose themselves near vehicle traffic to get anywhere. Drivers also have a responsibility to look out for and show extra care to pedestrians no matter where they are.

Pedestrian Accidents In Newburg Louisville

By Kaufman and Stigger on

Whenever any driver in Lexington pulls out onto the streets at night their minds should be focused on the road in front of them. In low light situations, they should always show extra care to monitor the lanes for people like bicyclists and pedestrians who can be harder to spot in the dark and in sections lacking in street lights.

This extension of care is not just a courtesy, it’s part of the law that’s meant to protect anyone using the roads who doesn’t have the protection that someone in a vehicle would have in a collision.
