Distracted driving takes a toll on pedestrians

The world is more dangerous than ever for pedestrians. In 2016, the US saw the largest increase in pedestrian fatalities ever recorded. Pedestrian deaths have been tracked for four decades. In terms of raw numbers, more than 6,000 pedestrians died in vehicle-related accidents. While there are several possible explanations, many safety experts are pointing to the rise in smart phone use as the driving factor behind the increase.
