Fort Lauderdale and Miami streets are the most dangerous cities in the country for pedestrian, a new study reports.
"Fort Lauderdale averaged 12 pedestrian fatalities per year from 1998 to 2000. Miami, with more than double Fort Lauderdale's population, averaged 22 fatalities in that time period. Common themes: the overwhelming majority of fatalities occurred outside intersections, two-thirds took place on urban roads and half happened at night. Alcohol was more of a factor for victims than drivers; 37% of the pedestrians killed had alcohol in their system, compared to 18% of the drivers."
