According to the National Center for Health Statistics, motor vehicles are responsible for one of every five deaths among children 1–14 years of age in the United States, and pedestrian injuries account for one fourth of them. Pedestrian injuries are typically more severe than vehicle occupant injuries, which are more than 5 times likely to result in death. Traumatic brain injury accounts for more than half the fatalities. The child pedestrian death rate has declined during the past several decades in the United States.
