Liability In Pedestrian Accidents
Nearly 4,000 pedestrians are killed every year in car accidents. Many more are seriously injured. A number of these accidents occur when drivers are speeding and fail to see pedestrians. According to California Vehicle Code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.” School zones tend to have even lower speed limits while school is in session.
