BROOKLYN - A recent report has Brooklyn topping the list for most dangerous streets in the city when it comes to pedestrian deaths.

According to the Transportation for America study, 515 pedestrians were killed between 2000-2009, putting it above all of the other boroughs. Many residents say more needs to be done to curb speeding before more people lose their lives.

The city says despite the numbers, streets are safer to walk across than ever before. Officials have installed new countdown clocks at many busy intersections, including Flatbush Avenue and 4th Avenue.
