A strategy for pedestrian safety in Iran

Pedestrian traffic accidents constitute a major part of all traffic accidents in Iran. Field studies with the objective of finding and classifying pedestrian traffic safety problems were carried out in the two provinces of Gilan and Mazandran. These provinces were selected because the roadsides are busy, traffic volume and speed are high and there are many commuters. Considering the vastness of the road network in these provinces, we first defined some indexes for the selection of appropriate areas and then prioritized them. After a more precise study of the prioritized areas, objective setting for improvement of pedestrian safety was carried out. For each strategy, safety improvement measures were discussed under three headings - engineering, education and enforcement.
