Pedestrian-related traffic crashes remain a serious problem in Texas. In 2019, there were 5,954 crashes involving pedestrians in our state, resulting in 668 deaths and 1,312 serious injuries. From 2015 to 2019, pedestrian fatalities resulting from traffic crashes increased 17%.

The top factors contributing to traffic crashes in Texas involving pedestrians are:

  • Pedestrians failing to yield right-of-way to vehicles
  • Drivers failing to yield right-of-way to pedestrians
  • Driver inattention
  • Speeding

All of us share a responsibility to bring the number of pedestrian fatalities to zero.
