Although the law clearly affords pedestrians and bicyclists the right of way in many situations, drivers often fail to adhere to these laws. Their negligence can lead to very serious consequences. According to a 2011 report by the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHSTA) there were 677 bicycle fatalities in the United States, which represents 2.1% of total traffic facilities. The majority of cyclist fatalities, 201 (30%), occurred between the hours of 4 PM and 7:59 PM. The number of cyclists killed in 2011 was 9 percent higher than the 623 cyclists killed in 2010.
The state of Florida had the highest incident of cyclist fatalities per million population (6.56), nearly twice any other state.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in 2010, 4,280 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States, and another 70,000 pedestrians were injured. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours, and a pedestrian injury every 8 minutes. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be killed in a car crash on each trip.
