Pedestrian Fatalities Increase, NHTSA Urges All to Walk Safe

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data from 2010 shows that pedestrian fatalities increased by 4%. The agency urges the public to "walk with care," use crosswalks wherever possible and urges drives to be conscious of pedestrians at all times. Safety recommendations for both pedestrians and drivers are available on NHTSA's website, as are additional statistics and information.
