Every two hours a person on foot is killed in a traffic crash

Who’s traffic nowCrosswalk-28

As driving safety increases, more share of the risk is falling on people on foot.

According to the latest National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics, this suggests a pedestrian is killed in America in a traffic crash every two hours, and injured every eight minutes. Twenty-one percent of children aged 10-15 who die in traffic crashes actually weren’t in the car – they were pedestrians.

The latest statistics (AtlanticCities).

The good news is that the US-DOT is clearly reminded everyone it is their issue: Everyone is a pedestrian
