Bicyclists and pedestrian advocates say a new report on the steady increase in fatal hit-and-run crashes offers yet another reason to move faster on redesigning streets and highways in a rapidly urbanizing world.

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety said in a report this week fatal hit-and-run crashes have reached the highest point on record in 2016, having increased by more than 7 percent every year since 2009. Nearly 65 percent of the victims are bicyclists and pedestrians.
