Driving under the influence.

Despite the marketing efforts of activist groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and harsh laws intended to prevent drunk driving, alcohol was involved in 48 percent of fatal crashes in 2014.

Reduced visibility.

At night and during inclement weather, pedestrians are more difficult to see. This is especially true when pedestrians are wearing dark clothing. Similarly, cars on the road at night without their headlights turned on are less likely to be noticed by pedestrians.

Unpredictable behavior.

Pedestrians who do not wait for “go” signals at crosswalks or demonstrate unpredictable behavior are likely to surprise drivers, who then have little time to react and avoid a crash.​
