株洲市2014高考英语阅读理解、短文改错训练(10)及答案

(第 篇)

Cities alarmed by deaths and injuries of pedestrians are taking efforts to make

crosswalks safer for people on foot, especially seniors and children who need more

time to cross streets.

A pedestrian is killed in a traffic accident in the USA every 110 minutes; one

is injured every nine minutes, according to official data.Crosswalks can be especially

dangerous for the elderly. Among people 70 and older,36% of pedestrian deaths in 2006

occurred in crosswalks, compared with 21% of those younger than 70, according to the

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The Federal Highway Administration(FHWA) advises that next year states increase

by nearly 15% the amount of time traffic lights provide for pedestrians to cross the

street after the flashing orange hand appears.

FHWA spokesman Doug Hecox says reasons for the change include an aging population

that needs more time to cross, healthconscious Americans walking more ,children

encouraged to walk to prevent getting overweight and high gas prices pushing people

to walk instead of drive.

Pedestrian deaths went down by 12% from 5,449 in 1996 to 4,784 in 2006. But among

those in 2006,471 were killed in crosswalks, down slightly from 488 ten years earlier,

the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) says.
