California, home to sprawling cities and bustling traffic, has a high rate of pedestrian accidents. From 2020 to 2021, pedestrian fatalities increased by 9.4%, from 1,013 to 1,108. This is largely due to its heavy traffic, urban congestion, and the increasing interaction between vehicles and pedestrians.

Pedestrian deaths are most common at night in urban areas and on roads far from intersections, where vehicles often travel at higher speeds. These incidents are often due to hit-and-run accidents, incidents at crosswalks, and collisions caused by distracted or impaired driving.
