An auto accident involving a pedestrian or a bicyclist has little chance of emerging without injuries if struck by a car. The state of Florida has been working on improving cross walks and signals. According to PSAP (Pedestrian Safety Action Plan)most Pinellas County pedestrian auto accidents happen at major intersections. Most pedestrian accidents happen when the person is in a hurry to cross the road and they go against the signal.
