New Study from Safe Kids Finds Teenagers at Greatest Risk for Pedestrian Injuries
“Walking Safely, A Report to the Nation” examines 15-year trends in child pedestrian injuries and deaths in the U.S. The report reveals that while walking safety has improved overall for children since 1995, there are still a staggering number of children hit by cars. More than 61 children are injured every day severely enough to seek medical attention. More than 500 children are killed every year.
