35 Worst Cities For Pedestrians

Transportation for America has just released a new study on which U.S. cities are most dangerous for pedestrians, and God forbid if you have to walk anywhere in Florida! The top five worst cities for walking are in the sunshine state.

The good news though is that I didn't see any Washington or Idaho cities on the list.

Here's the top 35 worst cities for walking.

The report blames most pedestrian deaths on what they call “poorly
designed arterial roads”—they’re high-speed, multi-lane city streets
lined with shopping centers, drive-throughs, apartments, and office
space, yet devoid of pedestrian-friendly elements like crosswalks."

i read this blog.and then -
Saw this, thought it might be interesting, considering most of the
cities on this list seem to have a much greater focus on roads than on
pedestrians...
