New York Laws That Protect Pedestrians

There are many laws in New York that are in favor of pedestrians: New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law – This is the state’s official vehicle and traffic laws. If a pedestrian is injured by a motorist who violates this law, the motorist will often be found negligent in a civil suit.

Elle’s Law: Under this law, any motorist who violates this law and in the process injures an individual severely receives an automatic suspension of their license for six months. If they have any other incident that violates Elle’s Law within five years, their license will be suspended for a full year.

Hayley & Diego’s Law: This law created a “careless driving” violation that concerns specific penalties when a motorist fails to operate a motor vehicle carefully, and as a result, a pedestrian or bicyclist is injured. It acts as a legal stop gap to be used when a pedestrian accident injury has occurred due to driver negligence, but a criminal charge is not likely. The first offense garners either:

A $750 fine, or
15 days in jail, or
Completion of a driving training course.
