Walking on the Suncoast could be hazardous to your health. A new study indicates that eight of the 10 most dangerous places in the United States for pedestrians are in Florida. That includes the Bradenton-Sarasota-North Port metro. The report called “Dangerous by Design 2016” from a group called Smart Growth America, shows that between 2005 and 2014, the Bradenton-Sarasota-North Port metro area had 150 pedestrian deaths. The study used a number of federal government sources to calculate a Pedestrian Danger Index. This index makes it possible to compare pedestrian safety in cities of different size, density, and rates of walking. By that Index, Bradenton-Sarasota-North Port ranks eighth in the country for pedestrian danger.
