Pedestrians are afforded protection under traffic laws when walking along the street or crossing a road. In some cases, the driver may not have seen the pedestrian or failed to drive safely near individuals who are traveling in their vicinity. When accidents like the Columbia pedestrian accident occur at night, visibility for motorists may be diminished, and pedestrians may be at-risk for a spate of injuries as well as potential fatalities.
