Pedestrians are among the few categories of road users where deaths rose. Fatalities declined in almost all segments of the population—passenger vehicle occupants, large-truck occupants, cyclists, young drivers, and with alcohol-impaired driving fatalities; only pedestrian fatalities increased by 2.2 percent, according to NHTSA. The pedestrian death rates of major cities were generally higher than the national average of 1.53 per 100,000 people in 2014. The following list is based on latest data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It includes cities with a population of at least 500,000 people.
