USA Today Lists 10 Most Dangerous U.S. Cities For Pedestrians PDF Print E-mail

The familiar news source is usually very informative and accurate, but a recent news item makes little sense to savvy seniors. It rates eight of the ten cities in Florida, while ignoring much more lethal streets of New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and others.

Later in the article, it states the obvious: pedestrians age 65 and older are 50% more likely to be killed by cars than any other age group. If seniors get anything sensible from this curious information, it’s that you must be extra careful when crossing streets in cities. Wait for the proper light and look carefully in both directions before proceeding.

Additionally, because of the latest in tech stuff, be extra alert while walking on city sidewalks and when crossing streets. Watch out for dumb people walking and driving while staring and gabbing mindlessly into little hand-held smartphones.
