South Florida Lands In Top Five On “Most Dangerous” List

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida has come in second on another list it doesn’t want to be on.

According to the National Complete Streets Coalition, our streets are the second most dangerous for pedestrians. Orlando came in number one, while Tampa, Jacksonville and Memphis rounded out the top five.  Other cities in the top 10 were Phoenix, Houston, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Charlotte.

Boston, Pittsburgh, Seattle, New York and San Francisco were the metro areas ranked the least dangerous for pedestrians.

The report says Florida transportation officials have been working to improve pedestrian safety since its metro areas were ranked among the worst for pedestrians in years past.

The coalition is a program of Smart Growth America, a research and advocacy group.
