Nashville ranks as 37th most dangerous city for walkability, up from the 15th most dangerous in 2014, according to a new report from Smart Growth America.

There were 209 pedestrians struck and killed by cars in Nashville in a ten-year period through 2014. While the ranking improved from the 2014 report, the number of deaths was consistent, with 210 deaths reported previously.

The report examined pedestrian safety in 104 metro areas, each state and Washington, D.C., and the ranking is based on calculations that include the number of walking commuters and pedestrian deaths.
