Growth of pedestrians killed by motorists is at 30 year highs.
Preliminary reports are showing that 6,590 pedestrians were killed in 2019 from motorists, which is now a new 30 year high beating out 2018's 6,227 three decade high. Not the kind of statistic you really want to beat year in and year out.
There is a lot of research going on about how to reverse this trend, & I think the article I attached to this blog does a great job highlighting one key area that needs to change - external vehicular sounds. No real advancement has been made to enhance the vocabulary of a vehicle or driver.
Check it out, & let us know what you think. We hope that as vehicles become smarter, we start seeing reports for "30 Year Lows" when it comes to pedestrians being killed by motorists.
