GHSA estimates a 10% in the number of pedestrians killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2015 compared to 2014. The preliminary 2015 data were provided by GHSA's member State Highway Safety Office members. All 50 states and the District of Columbia provided data.
This report, made possible through funding from State Farm®, provides an overview of current pedestrian safety data and research and how states are using this and other information to address pedestrian safety through education, enforcement and legislative initiatives.
