Pedestrians at an Increasing Risk of Dying on the Road

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently revealed the number of pedestrian deaths for the year 2013, and it showed a troubling rise in the percentage of pedestrian fatalities.

  • In 2004, 4,675 pedestrians died on the road. This accounted for 11% of total traffic-related fatalities
  • In 2013, a total of 4,735 pedestrians were killed in the United States, accounting for 14% of the total traffic-related fatalities

Within less than a decade, the number of pedestrian fatalities has steadily climbed. Now the risk of a pedestrian dying on the streets is 3% higher than it was in 2004. But these are not the only concerning statistics regarding pedestrian safety:

  • 4,653 of these traffic crashes resulted in one or more pedestrian fatalities
  • Approximately 66,000 pedestrians were injured across the United States in 2013
  • This translates to a pedestrian being killed every 2 minutes and a pedestrian becoming injured every 8 minutes across this nation in 2013
  • In 2013, New Mexico suffered 49 pedestrian deaths, accounting for 16% of all traffic related deaths
