The State of Kentucky is not one of the safest places to walk around. As compared to other states that have more walkways and side pathways, Kentucky is not as well equiped to handle pedestrian traffic as are some other states. In a recent study of pedestrian safety, Kentucky was the 7th most dangerous city for walking.
In some countries, pedestrian traffic is encouraged. In others it is a mandatory form of transportation when driving is not an option. In the United States, pedestrian traffic is still the exception, not the rule. Most people either drive or take public transportation. Though, in some U.S. cities, safety for pedestrian traffic is of great concern. The lanes for their traffic is marked and easily observed.
Pursuant to this February 2008 article from the USA Today newspaper, a pedestrian is killed in a U.S. car accident every 110 minutes, and a pedestrian is injured every 9 minutes.
