INFRACCIONES Y DEMAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS DE LOS PEATONES VICTIMAS, IMPLICADOS EN ACCIDENTES (CARRETERA Y ZONA URBANA)

BASED ON ACCIDENT STATISTICS FROM 1973 TO 1975 A STUDY IS CONDUCTED OF THE DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING ACCIDENTS INVOLVING PEDESTRIANS, THE OFFENCES COMMITTED BY PEDESTRIANS (CROSSING THE ROAD WHEN THE TRAFFIC SIGNALS ARE GREEN, CROSSING THE ROAD OUTSIDE PERMITTED AREAS, WALKING ON THE CARRIAGEWAY), AND THE PSYCHOPHYSICAL CAUSES (INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL, LACK OF ATTENTION AND SUDDEN ILLNESS) WHICH LEAD TO ONE ACCIDENT OUT OF 4. A DISTINCTION IS MADE BETWEEN FATALITIES AND INJURIES, SEVERE AND LIGHT INJURIES, AND CONDITIONS AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT (CROSSING A JUNCTION, STEPPING ON THE ROAD, ETC). THE NUMBER OF FATALITIES IS RELATED TO VEHICLE OWNERSHIP; THE VEHICLES ARE CLASSIFIED PER TYPE. THE STATISTICS APPLY TO BOTH URBAN AND RURAL AREAS.
