    I would be careful with the wording in that first headline. You can only claim that the Denver metro area is more “hostile to pedestrians.” The report Smart Growth America is covering metropolitan areas whereas WalkDenver, Denver City Council, the mayor and his “Vision Zero” plan can only influence and/or can make a difference in the city of Denver. A better metric would be to see how Denver, the city, is improving or not improving year over year.
