Across America in 2018, 6,227 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents. This is the highest number in three decades, according to a report from the Governors Highway Safety Association. The report revealed many of the pedestrian fatalities happened in major cities such as Miami and Houston.

The dangers to pedestrians are quite clear in big American cities: long stretches of busy roads with no crosswalks, and people having to walk on roads that are designed for rush hour traffic. But experts say there is an even bigger reason for more pedestrians being hit and killed by cars: Both drivers and pedestrians are being more distracted by their cell phones. Also, there are many more larger vehicles on the road.
