Although anyone can be the victim of a pedestrian accident, small children and the elderly are especially vulnerable when it comes to being hit by a car. Due to their tiny size, children who may be in or near the roadway often go unnoticed by drivers. Children are also unfamiliar with even basic driving rules, increasing their odds of being involved in an accident even more. Elderly people are also exposed to a greater risk of pedestrian accidents because they tend to move slower and may be unable to quickly get out of the way of an oncoming vehicle.

With pedestrians having no physical protection against being struck by a car, accidents involving them typically end with them sustaining critical injuries or even the loss of life.
