The preliminary data showed that the number of pedestrian traffic fatalities in the United States for the first six months of 2010 was essentially unchanged from 2009, increasing just 0.4 percent. If the second six months of 2010 also show no significant change, this will be the first year of increase or no progress after four years of decline.

The report summarizes general principles states can use to keep pedestrians safe, such as prioritization, data analysis, engineering, laws and enforcement, and education.
