Negligent drivers must be held accountable for wrecks

San Diego is known as a city that is friendly to pedestrians. The issue with this is that not all drivers take the time to ensure that people who are walking about can do so safely. Without cooperation from everyone, there are going to be accidents that involve people who are walking around or riding on bicycles. In many cases, these are the fault of negligent drivers.

Pedestrians risk serious injuries due to negligent drivers

Pedestrians walking around the city have the right to enjoy all of the sites and experiences they can.

Unfortunately, we know that pedestrians across the country are hit and injured by cars every day.

Electric scooters might pose a risk to pedestrians
