Also known as the “Motor City,” Detroit has one of the highest death rates for pedestrians, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Among U.S. cities with a population of more than 500,000, based on yearly averages from 1998 to 2000, Detroit had the highest annual pedestrian fatality rate with 5.05 deaths per 100,000 people, NHTSA said.

The pedestrian death rate in Detroit was twice as high as that of New York City, according to NHTSA.

Other large U.S. cities showing high per capita death rates for pedestrians included Denver, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Dallas.
