Studies have shown that there is a higher pedestrian mortality rate due to a car accident in a state of cannabis legalization 



According to MyNorthwest news reports, a new survey shows that the average number of people killed in car manslaughter in states where cannabis is legalized is higher than in other states.

The result is a study by the Washington State Highway Safety Association. The study said that in the past year, nearly 6,000 pedestrians in the United States died in traffic accidents.

Using data from the same period in 2016 as a reference, from 2012 to 2016, the annual number of pedestrian deaths in all states that entertain cannabis is on the rise. In five years, the average cumulative pedestrian death rate in these states increased by 16.4%. However, in those states where marijuana was not legalized, the average cumulative pedestrian death rate decreased by 5.8%.

The study concluded that the factors that led to the death of these pedestrians could include texting while walking, using a cellphone while driving, walking, using a cannabis while driving, and so on. The researchers did not pinpoint the link between pedestrian death and legal marijuana, but also pointed out that this (ie, the use of cannabis) deserved attention.

As part of the Vision Zero Safety Initiative, which became operational in 2015, Seattle City limits branch speed to 25-30 miles per hour in November 2016. The project aims to gradually reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries in urban streets and reduce the accident rate to zero by 2030.

Data from the City of Seattle shows that when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, a speed of 25 mph hits half the impact of a 30 mph impact. Therefore, always pay attention to control the speed of the vehicle is one of the ways to effectively reduce the pedestrian mortality.
