U.S. Pedestrian Fatalities Reach Record High Since 1990, NHTSA Says:

Complete 2018 data from the NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) shows that road deaths decreased by over 2.4 percent, from 37,473 in 2017 to 36,560 in 2018. This doesn’t mean the roads are safer all around, as the NHTSA also recorded a hike in fatalities of pedestrians and operators of bicycles and similar vehicles (e-bikes, tricycles, unicycles, and so on). Combined, deaths in these two categories total 7,140, for an increase of over 3.6 percent year-over-year, each category at a 29-year high.
