Rapid City to study high pedestrian accident rate

Posted: Updated:
RAPID CITY -- Rapid City officials are using a $5,000 grant through the state Health Department to study ways to make city streets safer for pedestrians.

The Rapid City Journal reports city statistics show that 26 pedestrians were hit by motorists last year - more than twice the rate in the rest of the state.

Long Range Community Planner Sandy Smith says the city will be compiling a list of key areas to study, and will then solicit volunteers to hit the streets. The study will start on May 31 and last for a year.
