According to the Government Highway Safety Association study, this bears true in Florida as well as nationwide. However, we continue to have among the most pedestrian deaths in the country, third only to Texas and California, which are far more populated. These three states account for one-third of all pedestrian deaths nationwide.
Researchers analyzing federal data found that Florida pedestrian fatalities fell from 234 in the first half of 2012 to 179 in the first half of 2013 – a 23 percent drop. But our Fort Myers pedestrian accident lawyers know that still means there is one pedestrian death just about every other day in Florida.
