Too many times, people who are just walking along on our sidewalks or crossing our streets are injured severely just because someone driving a car was not paying attention. Arizona Revised Statutes ARS 28 791 and ARS 28 792 both deal with pedestrians in a crosswalk. Those who cross a street somewhere other than a crosswalk are discussed in Arizona Revised Statute ARS 28 793. It should be noted, however, that Arizona Revised Statute ARS 28 794 requires drivers of motor vehicles to exercise due care.
Too often a pedestrian that is injured seriously needs to overcome an initial reaction that blames the person who was walking, even in cases where the driver of the vehicle may have been negligent.
