New technology may reduce the chance of pedestrian accidents

When a moving vehicle collides with a person who is outside of the car, the results can be devastating. Pedestrian accidents often result in serious injuries or even fatalities, even when the vehicle is moving at a slow rate of speed at the time. In order to reduce the chance of these types of serious accidents, automakers are developing technology that can make the roads safer for Louisiana drivers and pedestrians.

Change in headlight regulations could reduce pedestrian accidents

As Louisiana readers know, many traffic collisions and motor vehicles incidents happen at night. Visibility is lower, and the brightness and intensity of a vehicle's headlights can greatly impact how well a driver can see other vehicles and even pedestrians. Potential changes in headlight regulations by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard could allow for adaptive-beam headlights, which may reduce pedestrian accidents and make the roads safer in general.

Why are there more pedestrian accidents now?

In Louisiana, people choose to walk from one place to another for many different reasons. It can be faster, cheaper and better for health to walk whenever possible instead of driving. While pedestrians do enjoy certain benefits, there may be certain risks involved as well. Pedestrian accidents are on the rise across the country, specifically fatal accidents.
