Pedestrian Fatalities, United States (new page)

Pedestrian deaths are on the rise after decades of decline. This disturbing trend is the outcome of several factors, including the rise in SUV sales, more people living in suburbia and the diffusion of smartphones (distractions for both the drivers and the pedestrians). These factors cannot be easily addressed so it can be expected that pedestrian deaths are likely to continue to rise.
