Jacksonville, Florida – A Dangerous Place for Pedestrians

  • Sumo

A recently released study has Jacksonville, Florida (Duval County) as the third most dangerous city in the United States for pedestrians. From 2000 through 2009, over 300 pedestrians were killed in the City of Jacksonville. The national study also has other Florida cities as danger zones for pedestrians including Orlando / Kissimmee, Tampa / St. Petersburg / and Clearwater, Miami / Fort Lauderdale. One of the factors that may have put Jacksonville on the list is the wide intersections that are located throughout the city like the one at University and Beach Boulevard. These heavily trafficked area make it a dangerous and risky place for pedestrians to cross.
