Pedestrian Accidents – An In-Depth Look

Comments Off

In May The Honolulu Advisor published a special report on pedestrian accidents:

Every day on average, one or two people get hit by a car as they’re walking on a street somewhere on O’ahu. Most of the accidents occur in a six-mile long area between Kapahulu and Kalihi.

Pedestrians use the crosswalk at King Street and Fort Street Mall in downtown Honolulu, an area prone to pedestrian accidents. Business districts like this are made hazardous by the heavy concentration of pedestrians, cars and buses.

Even so, it’s impossible to predict where the next pedestrian will be hit. Unlike motor vehicle collisions, pedestrian accidents do not cluster around specific intersections.
