Walking is great exercise and an environmentally-friendly way to get around town. Unfortunately, pedestrian-involved accidents are on the rise. In 2015, there were more than 900 pedestrian-related accidents and pedestrian deaths increased from 17 to 41. October proved to be the most dangerous month for Minnesota pedestrians and 26% of those pedestrians killed were crossing a street without a crosswalk or signal. The main contributing factors for vehicle/pedestrian crashes were failure to yield and inattentive driving.
