The female driver of the Nissan pickup truck was arrested by San Francisco Police Officers for suspicion of driving under the influence. Unfortunately, driver intoxication is common cause of pedestrian accidents. Intoxicated drivers are a danger to pedestrians because they lack the reaction time and awareness to safely operate their vehicles.
This tragic accident exemplifies the dangers facing San Francisco’s pedestrians. Crowded streets, reckless drivers, and unsafe intersections all contribute to give San Francisco the dubious distinction of being one of America’s most dangerous cities for pedestrians.
