Study: Albany, Schenectady among most dangerous cities for pedestrians
A new study finds Albany and Schenectady are among the list for the most dangerous cities in the U.S. for pedestrians.
Schenectady took the number two spot, while Albany was at number 12.
The study was done by Insurify – an insurance comparison marketplace.
Researchers there named 20 most dangerous cities, based on their database of more than 4.6 million insurance applications. They calculated the proportion of drivers reporting one or more citations for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
In Schenectady, 38.1 drivers per 10,000 were cited. That’s nearly 9.5 times higher than the national average.
In Albany, it was 25.7 drivers per 10,000.
Elizabeth, New Jersey was deemed the most dangerous place for pedestrians.
Rounding out the top five – Concord, California took the number three spot, number four went to Roseville, California and Manchester, Connecticut took fifth place.
