As a pedestrian, you are at risk of being involved in a road traffic accident.

The number of pedestrians killed or seriously injured in Scotland does not make good reading.

Scottish Pedestrian Casualties due to Road Traffic Accidents

Scottish cities have some of the highest incidents of pedestrian KSIs from road traffic collisions in the UK.

  • Glasgow ranks 9th with 86.3 KSIs per 100,000 population
  • Aberdeen ranks 12th with 80.6 KSIs per 100,000 population
  • Dundee and Edinburgh are well above the UK average of 45.6 at 69.5 and 64.8 respectively.

Unfortunately, because you’re not afforded the same protection as car drivers, you have a higher chance of sustaining serious injury. If you’ve been struck by a moving vehicle, you’re likely to be frustrated because the accident was probably caused by the motorist who didn’t see you or may have been distracted in some way whilst driving.

There are many reasons why accidents occur and, whilst nobody ever intends to cause an accident, they do happen.
