U.S. pedestrian deaths from car crashes surge (2016)

Reuters wrote:

Pedestrian deaths from car crashes surged the most in at least four decades last year and now account for about 15% of fatalities from motor vehicle accidents.... "We are projecting the largest year-to-year increase in pedestrian fatalities since national records have been kept...."

Possible reasons cited:
  * Increased use of cell phones (both drivers and peds)
  * Falling gas prices

And my own suspicion, society is becoming increasingly selfish so drivers think less about their responsibilities to others.
