Safety needs

New Latino immigrants account for the highest rate of pedestrian fatalities in the South, due to limited access to vehicles or public transportation and a poor pedestrian infrastructure, says the Chicago Tribune-City. “You end up on the road because there’s no side of the road you can walk on,” says Stephanie Bohon, a UGA demographer who studies immigrant issues, in the article. “These people are walking under hazardous conditions. They know they’re taking a risk, but they haven’t many other options.”
