New auto safety systems do little to protect pedestrians

The number of people killed on the roads in Louisiana and around the country fell slightly in 2018 according to a set of figures released recently by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Sadly, the news was far from good for the country's most vulnerable road users. The number of pedestrians killed after being struck by a motor vehicle rose by 3.4% to 6,283 in 2018, and cyclist fatalities climbed by an even more alarming 6.3% to 857. The pedestrian death toll in 2018 was the highest since 1990 according to NHTSA.

Only Arkansas was ranked below Louisiana.
