Dangerous By Design: Most Dangerous Large Metro Areas for Pedestrians

Transportation for America has published a table: Dangerous By Design: Most Dangerous Large Metro Areas for Pedestrians

Interestingly of the 52 largest US metros, the Twin Cities was the safest for Pedestrians, with only 0.54 Deaths per 100,000 residents, despite 2.4% walking to work. Orlando, Tampa, Miami, and Jacksonville topped the list as most dangerous.

Probably not coincidentally, Minneapolis-St.Paul-Bloomington ranks 6th in the US on funds spent on federal bike/ped $ per person (though I suspect it is skewed toward bikes compared to their number), at $2.61.
