PEDESTRIAN SAFETY: THE IDENTIFICATION OF PERCIPITATING FACTORS AND POSSIBLE COUNTERMEASURES

CAUSES OF PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS ARE IDENTIFIED AND APPROPRIATE COUNTERMEASURES ARE RECOMMENDED. BEHAVIORAL AND DESCRIPTIVE DATA FOR OVER 2,000 PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN 13 MAJOR CITIES WERE COLLECTED BY INTERVIEWS AND ON-SCENE OBSERVATIONS. CASES WERE DIVIDED INTO ACCIDENT TYPES BY CAUSAL FACTORS AND TARGET GROUPS. THE FIVE MOST FREQUENT TYPES ACCOUNTED FOR OVER 50% OF THE SAMPLE CASES. COUNTERMEASURES RELEVANT TO EACH ACCIDENT TYPE ARE DISCUSSED. VOLUME 1 SUMMARIZES THE PROJECT AND PRESENTS FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS TOGETHER WITH BACKGROUND MATERIAL ON THE PEDESTRIAN PROBLEM. VOLUME 2 CONTAINS 7 APPENDICES GIVING DETAILED DOCUMENTATION OF THE FINDINGS. /AUTHOR/
