FOX News is reporting about the rise of pedestrian deaths

And how the cause is because of the increase in the use of cell phones and SUVs on the road.

"There needs to be some big changes. This needs to be a National priority."

Really? You don't say? More people using a device or vehicle causing a death means we have to make changes? Like, say, a ban on them? Regulating their use?

A National priority.

Huh.

1. Maybe they want to subliminally remind people they can get killed in the streets at protests! n/t

2. They want to reduce pedestrian deaths, not gun deaths.

They are allergic to irony.

3. Obviously, more people should play with guns while driving...

Apparently, that would be safer.

5. Estimated 6,277 Deaths in 2018. Lowest years, when Obama was president.

.

As you may have heard, since a lot was written about it a few weeks ago, pedestrian deaths are on the rise in the U.S. The Governors Highway Safety Association estimated, based on data from the first half of the year, that 6,227 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in 2018. This would be a whopping 50 percent more than were killed in 2009. Adjusted for population, the increase hasnít been quite so steep, and seems like it might have halted after 2016. But after decades of declines, the turnaround since 2009 is still awful.

Phoenix, AZ and many parts of Florida are high risk areas.

6. Do FOX viewers actually walk anywhere? I doubt this is much concern to them.

I mean, look at their hero.
