I walk everywhere here in New York, and it's one of my favorite things about living here, i don't even own a car. Interesting to see how the highest fatalities are here in the US and in particular in places where people mostly drive. I guess that's becuase they are not used to pedestrians?
Cities where pedestrians happily walk to their destinations instead of driving everywhere are our dream, but what if walking means taking your life into your hands? This is a look at a handful of cities around the world, and how often their pedestrians are killed while attempting to traverse them. (click on the diagram above for the details)
