Atlanta has been named as the deadliest city for pedestrians, according to GOOD Magazine.
The article states that some 10.97 people die for every 100,000 residents each year.
This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to residents of Midtown who cross 10th Street on their way to Piedmont Park or Blake’s, as drivers routinely forget to stop at the crosswalks or are forced to slam on their brakes to avoid hitting those on foot. I can attest to this first-hand.
Atlanta’s traffic is also among the worst in the nation, but we already knew that.
Detroit was number two on the list, while Los Angeles was the third most deadly city for pedestrians with 7.64 deaths per 100,000 residents.
