Pedestrian Fatalities Decreasing During COVID-19
August 28, 2020
For the five years prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, the number of pedestrians killed by cars in Tucson continued to increase, according to the Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility. In 2019, the Tucson Police Department stated that a total of 39 pedestrians were killed on the city’s roadways. That equates to about one death every nine days. Overall, from 2014 to 2019, there was approximately a 180 percent increase in Tucson’s pedestrian fatalities.
However, Arizona Public Media reported that this year, those numbers are finally going down, which is likely due to the decrease in the number of vehicles on Tucson’s roads during the pandemic. Tucson Police Department Captain Diana Duffy said it is difficult to compare 2020 to previous years because circumstances created by COVID-19 have dramatically changed traffic flow. So far, there has been a 22 percent decrease this year in pedestrian fatalities, according to Duffy. However, motorcycle and vehicle fatalities have increased in the same timeframe.

Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
