In the past decade, more than 43,000 Americans have been killed when crossing a street or walking along a road. To put that in perspective, this is the equivalent of a jumbo passenger jet going down every month. Even scarier? The top ten most dangerous cities to walk in, according to the report, are all in the South. A new study by Transportation for America analyzed metro areas and estimated the likelihood that pedestrians will be killed in traffic accidents within each city.

The most dangerous metropolitan areas in the U.S. for walking in 2007-2008 were:
Orlando
Tampa
Miami
Jacksonville
Memphis
Raleigh
Louisville
Houston
Birmingham
Atlanta
