Okay, so this is maybe a little tongue in cheek. But a study by the Smart Growth America and the National Complete Streets Coalition recently ranked the safest and most dangerous cities in the US for pedestrians. Wouldn’t you know it, in spite of the nearly 9 million people living in the NY metro area – home to Allen School ground campuses – NYC ranks among the safest cities for those on foot; even when it feels like all 9 million residents are driving at the same time! So Allen School ground campus students across the boroughs are pretty safe when walking to and from campus for class. However, people living in the top 10 most dangerous cities for pedestrians, (Orlando, FL, Tampa, FL, Jacksonville FL, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Memphis, TN, Birmingham, AL, Houston, TX, Atlanta, GA, Phoenix, AZ and Charlotte, NC) should be a bit more worried about walking around in broad daylight. Per capita, these cities experience the highest levels of pedestrian injuries. Perhaps those living in these dangerous locales might consider taking online medical billing classes with the Allen School so as to minimize the time they spend walking around in the danger zone! P.S. Florida drivers: slow down WTH?
