There are many accidents involving a motor vehicle and a pedestrian that happened because of a negligent motorist. Unfortunately, it is generally the pedestrians who suffer the most serious injuries.

LAPD increases enforcement efforts at dangerous intersections

Pedestrians in Los Angeles are probably aware that there are some areas of the city that are more dangerous than others.

And the victims of auto-pedestrian accidents are not the only ones who are taking note of these hazardous areas.
