Orlando, Tampa-St. Petersburg, West Palm Beach, Austin, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Memphis, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Kansas City are the top ten urban areas with the highest rate of fatalities involving motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians, a nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington reports... The TRIP report concluded that major factors involved in individual traffic fatality rates include the behavior of drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists; the design of a region’s transportation facilities, particularly its roads and key intersections; the level of traffic congestion, which might actually reduce some fatalities by slowing traffic; the amount of regional tourism, and the level of overall travel within a region."
