News Release: New Report: Reversal in Three-Year Uptick in Pedestrian Fatalities (March 5, 2014)
In late 2013, GHSA asked its State Highway Safety Office members to report their preliminary pedestrian fatality numbers for the first six months of 2013. All 50 states and the District of Colubmia responded to the survey.
The data showed that the number of pedestrian traffic fatalities in the United States for the first six months of 2013 decreased by 190 – or 8.7% – from 2,175 in 2012 to 1,895 last year.
The report provides state-by-state data and also includes analysis of pedestrian fatality patterns, suggested explanations for recent fluctuations, and approaches to reducing pedestrian injuries.
