Drivers, however, also have a duty to use reasonable care while on roads and highways. Pedestrians may not be clearly visible to drivers during poor weather conditions. Also, pedestrians are more likely to suffer serious bodily injury or death due to being struck by an automobile.

Liability in Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians may suffer injuries under many different circumstances. Drivers operating trucks, scooters, passenger vehicles, and bicycles can all cause accidents involving pedestrians. A driver who strikes a pedestrian may be liable under the same principles relevant to other personal injury cases.
