The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 2013 was the second consecutive year of rising pedestrian deaths in Georgia, though the total number of pedestrian crashes decreased. <br />
Last year saw 182 people killed statewide after being hit by vehicles. So far this year, 67 pedestrians have died, a 12 percent increase over the same period in 2013. <br />
