Florida - Pedestrian Death Capital Of The U.S.

Across the United States, an estimated 2,368 pedestrians were killed in the first half of 2015, an increase of 10% over the same time period the prior year, said a new report from the Governor's Highway Safety Association. But Florida's pedestrian deaths are still highest among states.

From January to June 2015, 273 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in Florida, a decrease of 11% compared to the previous year. In 2015, Florida had the highest pedestrian fatalities rate of any state (1.35 pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 population). 

The preliminary 2015 data were provided by Governors Highway Safety Association’s State Highway Safety Office members.
