Most walkers were killed on local roads after dark, with nighttime crashes accounting for more than 90% of the total increase in pedestrian deaths over the past decade, leading the report to call for safer road crossings, as well as more educational PSAs for drivers to avoid dangerous driving behaviors such as speeding, distracted and drowsy driving, or driving under the influence. Alcohol impairment by the driver and/or the pedestrian was reported in about half of the traffic accidents that ended in pedestrian fatalities in 2017.
