The Worst States For Walking

Be On Your Guard When On Your Feet In These States

Becoming a pedestrian rather than a driver might be the right choice, but it does put you in danger from careless drivers. So you can be best appraised of your risk, here are the top ten most dangerous states for pedestrians.
