Review of Studies on Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety, 1991-2007

This report reviews the pedestrian and bicyclist safety research literature in print as of 2007. It summarizes and synthesizes the key studies, evaluates existing knowledge and identifies research gaps and provides recommendations for future direction. The review includes studies identified through searches of the TRIS, TRANSDOC, IRRD, PubMed, PsychLit, and SafetyLit automated databases and through contacts with research institutions and researchers. It also draws on the background papers and recommendations from the April 2000 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration/Federal Highway Administration Pedestrian and Bicycle Strategic Planning Research Workshops and from the Bicycle Safety 2000 Conference. Studies are organized into areas highlighting studies on pedestrian safety with emphasis on demographic characteristics, high-risk environments, travel behavior, injury typing and injury profiles and others. Similar grouping is made for studies on bicyclist safety. Topics include: crash and injury causation; laws and enforcement; public information and education; alcohol; conspicuity; and bicycle helmets.
