According to the law in Arizona, pedestrians hold the right-of-way in just about every situation. Any driver who dismisses a pedestrian’s safety is probably in violation of the law and, therefore, responsible for any of the damages the injured pedestrian or their family members have endured.
Arizona has the largest percentage of pedestrian fatalities in the United States. Based on a publication from the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, Arizona underwent an average of 4.1 deaths for every 100,000 residents for the first half of 2016. The types of pedestrians who are in the most danger of being hit by a car are joggers, children, and parents with strollers.
