A new study has ranked Minneapolis-St. Paul as first in the nation in pedestrian safety.
Do you feel safe as a pedestrian in the Twin Cities?
Comments texted to MPR:
Skyways help boost pedestrian safety stats but roads are a bit dicey. Maybe innovations on 1st and Hennepin will help. -Suzie, Minneapolis
No. Minneapolis is the only city where I have been hit as a pedestrian. I lived my first 25 years walking in Philadelphia. -anonymous
A little fear (respect) for traffic can be a healthy thing. Feeling too safe could lead people to get too relaxed and possibly get hurt. -anonymous
Yes I do but there is the occasional incident. -Jasper Morgan, St. Paul
Yes I feel safe. Not only is Minneapolis pedestrian-friendly but the drivers are overly cautious as well. -Trevor, Minneapolis
Yes, I feel safe. -Elise, Plymouth
