> 3.      Pedestrian Fatalities-Four Metropolitan Atlanta Counties, Georgia,

> 1994-1999 (Keoki Williams, 404/657-2635). In 1997, 5307 pedestrian
> fatalities occurred in the United States, accounting for 13% of
> motor-vehicle-related deaths. The Atlanta metropolitan statistical area
> (MSA) is reported to be the third most dangerous metropolitan area for
> walking, behind Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida. This report summarizes

> the findings of an investigation of pedestrian deaths in four central
> metropolitan Atlanta counties; the annual pedestrian fatality rate for
> these counties combined has been consistently higher than the national
> rate, and from 1994 to 1998, the four-county rate increased 13% (1 table,
