According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,743 pedestrians were killed in 2012 and an estimated 76,000 were injured in traffic crashes, a 6% increase over 2011. This translates to an average of one pedestrian being killed every two hours in traffic crashes and one being injured every seven minutes.
