Pedestrian traffic accidents are on the rise in the Des Moines metropolitan area, with a number of hit and run accidents sending pedestrians to the hospital. Nationally, pedestrian deaths are on the rise, and in Iowa, the number of pedestrian traffic fatalities has steadily increased over the last several years.
Not surprisingly, many traffic accidents involving pedestrians can be traced back to distracted driving. Unfortunately, all too many drivers are busy on their phones while driving, making Iowa roads more dangerous for pedestrians and other motorists alike.
Most everyone agrees that both drivers (and pedestrians) should put their phones down to prevent accidents. Avoiding high risk behaviors while driving make the roads safer for everyone.
