Texas Ranks Poorly in Pedestrian Safety, According to a National Study

Texas is among the least safe states for pedestrians, according to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As many experienced Texas pedestrian accident attorneys know, walking in our state’s cities and rural areas can be dangerous, especially when drivers fail to pay attention to their surroundings.

The NHTSA study ranked Texas as the 10th most dangerous state for pedestrians. Texas was the site of nearly 4,200 pedestrian deaths between 2003 and 2012 – about ten percent of all pedestrian deaths that take place in the United States, according to the NHTSA.
