Pedestrian Collisions in Florida
The Sunshine State has the highest pedestrian death rate in the nation. This could be due to the fact that Florida possesses one of the highest populations in the nation which makes for high accident rates.
Between 2005 and 2014, 46,149 individuals across the United States lost their lives due to pedestrian accidents. During this same timespan, 5,142 people were killed in pedestrian accidents in Florida. This means that Florida accounted for approximately 11% of the pedestrian fatality rate in the nation from 2005 to 2014.
