Did you see Dangerous by Design this week, our new report chronicling the thousands in preventable pedestrian deaths on our roads?
From 2000 through 2009, more than 47,700 pedestrians were killed in the United States, the equivalent of a jumbo jet full of passengers crashing roughly every month. Not only was Florida at the top of the list of most dangerous states for walking, but four Florida cities (Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Jacksonville) topped out our rankings of most dangerous metro areas.
We'd like to invite you to join T4 America’s Director James Corless and Billy Hattaway, a Florida Department of Transportation veteran currently with Bike Walk Central Florida, on a "telephone townhall" on this topic this upcoming Tuesday, May 31, at 7:00pm.
Despite the magnitude of these avoidable tragedies, (about 12% of all traffic deaths!) little public attention – and even less in public resources – has been committed to reducing pedestrian deaths and injuries.
Because you're a Florida resident, we'd love to have you join us next Tuesday for a "telephone townhall" discussion on solving this epidemic of preventable pedestrian deaths. Sign up today.
Thank you for your commitment to transportation solutions that make sense and save lives.
Stephen Lee Davis
Deputy Communications Director
Transportation for America
