ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A new report says Orlando is the most dangerous metro area for pedestrians, and three other Florida cities are also at the top of the list.

The report released Tuesday by the National Complete Streets Coalition says the Tampa, Jacksonville and South Florida metro areas are right behind Orlando on the list.

Rounding out the top 5 on the coalition’s Pedestrian Danger Index was Memphis.

Boston, Pittsburgh, Seattle, New York and San Francisco were the metro areas ranked the least dangerous for pedestrians.

The report says Florida transportation officials have been working to improve pedestrian safety since its metro areas were ranked among the worst for pedestrians in years past.

The coalition is a program of Smart Growth America, a research and advocacy group.
