My list


The pandemic and its influx of congestion-free roads in some areas created a less safe pedestrian experience, having ushered in a period of reckless driving in which motorists traveled at faster, deadlier speeds. Drivers increased their speeds in certain areas by up to 42% in 2020.

And according to a recent report from Smart Growth America, the number of people struck and killed by drivers rose by 45% over the past decade. In fact, the Orlando metropolitan area was also recently ranked as the most dangerous city for pedestrians, followed by Bakersfield, CA and Memphis, TN.
