A new pedestrian safety report lists Georgia as one of the most dangerous states in the country for pedestrians.
Georgia was ranked at No. 6 on the list of states that are most dangerous for pedestrians. The August Richmond Country metropolitan area was ranked as the 20th most dangerous area in the country for pedestrians. These recognitions are more than likely ones that Georgians and their policymakers would rather not have.
The report titled Dangerous by Design states that between 2008 and 2017, there were a total of 49,340 people killed in pedestrian accidents across the country. That makes it a staggering 13 persons killed each day in pedestrian accidents across the United States.
