Most of those injured or killed are pedestrians. In fact, the Department of Transportation findings showed that pedestrians account for over 52% of the fatalities caused by bus or truck accidents in New York City. Bus and truck drivers can be careless, overtired, distracted, or worse – drug or alcohol – impaired, and make poor judgements or drive recklessly, endangering passengers, other motorists and pedestrians.
