Last month, Transportation for America, a national group that focuses on aligning national, state, and local transportation policies revealed that the Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metropolitan area is the eighth deadliest area for pedestrians out of 52 metropolitan areas. This ranking was based on a nine-year period.
According to Transportation for America, the Phoenix metro area had an average of 2.3 deaths per 100,000 people with a total of 867 pedestrian deaths. Although Phoenix officials disagree with the numbers, Metro Light Rail has, nonetheless, launched a campaign urging riders not to run for the train. The agency believes that it is necessary to promote pedestrian and passenger safety, and to help minimize accidents caused by jaywalking.
