Pedestrian Accidents Spike with NYC’s Rising Temperatures

NYC pedestrian accidents are increasing as temperatures rise. Learn the concerning facts and how to protect yourself on the streets.
Tuesday, April 2, 2024

As the chill of winter gives way to the warmth of spring, New York City streets come alive with the hustle and bustle of people enjoying the warmer weather. However, with the increase in foot traffic comes a concerning trend: a rise in pedestrian accidents, also known as pedestrian knockdowns. 

The first and most obvious reason is the increased number of people who walk around the City during the warmer months. When the weather gets warmer, more people decide to walk, jog, or bike to their destinations, leading to higher pedestrian traffic on sidewalks, crosswalks, and roadways. 

The second factor in the increase in pedestrian accidents in the warmer months is driver attentiveness. As the temperature rises, drivers may become more complacent or distracted behind the wheel, especially with windows down or music playing, leading to a higher likelihood of accidents involving pedestrians.

If you’ve been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, pedestrian knockdown or bicycle accident in the New York City area, and its surrounding suburbs and counties, call our office to discuss your rights. You’ve likely been through a harrowing experience, and you don’t need to take this on alone. We understand this may be a difficult time in your life, and we are here to help.
