Interactive Map: America's Deadliest States for Runners and Walkers
Running and walking on America's streets has on the whole become safer over the past decade and a half. The number of fatal traffic accidents involving those on foot has fallen as cities have become more pedestrian friendly and many states have taken steps to better keep cars and runners and walkers apart.

Explore our interactive map to see how states differ, and whether your state's safety record is getting better or worse.
