Injuries resulting from pedestrian-motor vehicle crashes on public
roadways are termed pedestrian-motor vehicle traffic (PMVT) injuries. 4,749
pedestrians were reported to have been killed in motor vehicle crashes in
the United States in 2003. These deaths accounted for 11% of the 42,643 motor
vehicle deaths nationwide that year. An estimated 70,000 pedestrians were
injured or killed in motor vehicle collisions.
Speeding is a major contributing factor in crashes of all types.
In 2003, speeding was a contributing factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes.
Speeding has serious consequences when a pedestrian is involved. Fatal pedestrian
collisions occur more often during periods of darkness.
