The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that a pedestrian is killed every two hours and one is injured every nine minutes. When someone walking is hit by a car, truck, bus, motorcycle or bicycle, the resulting injuries can be serious or even fatal. Our bodies are not made to withstand the impact of a moving vehicle.
