Pedestrian Deaths

Wanna take a walk? Cincinnati, Ohio, is a lot safer than Tampa, Florida

Cities in the South and West are ranking as the most dangerous places to take a walk. A private study released today says people are three times more likely to be struck and killed on Florida streets in Orlando, Miami and the Tampa area than they are in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio. The study done by the Surface Transportation Policy Project says that in general, newer cities have wider roads which invite faster traffic.

It says they also lack enough crosswalks and sidewalks. Researchers say those factors can combine to "make walking a deadly activity."
