When asked to imagine a traffic accident, most Americans imagine two cars colliding instead of a pedestrian and a vehicle. This lack of consideration for walkers is causing pedestrian fatalities to increase while overall traffic fatalities decrease. Nationally, in 2012, pedestrians accounted for 14 percent of all traffic deaths, up six percent from 2011.
The report ranks 51 metro areas across the U.S. for pedestrian safety. Florida has all four of the most dangerous communities in the nation, the report says – mirroring similar results in a 2011 study.
