Las Vegas Sixth Most Dangerous for Pedestrians

LAS VEGAS -- An advocacy group is ranking Las Vegas as the sixth most dangerous metropolitan area in the nation for pedestrians, and Nevada the eighth most dangerous state.

Transportation for America in Washington, D.C., released a report titled "Dangerous by Design" on Tuesday. It puts Las Vegas behind the Florida cities of Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami, and the California metro area including Riverside, San Bernardino and Ontario.

It says that from 2000 to 2009, 421 pedestrians were killed in Las Vegas. That averages 2.5 pedestrian deaths per 100,000 residents per year -- far above the national average of 1.6 pedestrian deaths per 100,000.

An interactive map with the report shows local areas with the most pedestrian fatalities such as Tropicana Avenue, Flamingo Road, Sahara Avenue, Lake Mead Boulevard and Boulder Highway.
