Pedestrian fatalities, unfortunately, happen frequently in the state of New York. On average, hundreds of pedestrians are killed per year in the Empire State. In 2021, over 200 pedestrians were killed in New York City alone. Smart Growth America reported that pedestrian deaths continue to rise in the United States.
