Center to evaluate pedestrian safety guide for neighborhood residents

In 2007, 4,654 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States, representing 11 percent of all fatalities. More than 70,000 pedestrians are injured each year, and pedestrian injury and fatality rates have not significantly decreased in the past five years. The personal and social cost of these injuries and deaths is considerable, and measures are needed to improve pedestrian safety.
