Take Extra Caution as a Pedestrian in These States

With all the unexpected occurrences in the world, we are always looking to remain safe and enjoy life. Everyone knows the dangers of operating a vehicle on the open roads, but did you know that being a pedestrian could be just as dangerous? Some cities are more dangerous than others, which is why we have gathered a list of the most dangerous states for pedestrians so that you can be extra aware in these areas:

  • Unfortunately, Florida has gained a reputation for how dangerous their roads are for pedestrians. Each year, approximately 12 pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 individuals occur in Florida.
  • Delaware ranks second as one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians. So be extra cautious when enjoying the beautiful beaches, and the historic museums and mansions.
  • Southern hospitality is what South Carolina is really known for, but unfortunately, pedestrian fatalities happen often, with nearly 11 pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 individuals.
  • Perhaps due to the famous events such as the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans, Louisiana it has been ranked fourth as a dangerous state for pedestrians. Make sure to look both ways while enjoying the celebration!
