As traffic fatalities went down, pedestrian fatalities went up

Did you know that, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of traffic fatalities declined from 2006 to 2015?

The increases in distracted driving, coupled with inattentive pedestrians have to lead to a rise in accidents.
