Study on the Safe Accommodation of Vulnerable Road Users and Commercial Motor Vehicles in Urban Areas

Collisions between vulnerable road users (VRU’s) and commercial motor vehicles (CMV’s) in urban areas are a concern due to the potentially severe nature of these collisions, despite the low frequency of these incidences. There is, however, a deficiency in understanding the nature and characteristics of these collisions. This study was therefore conducted in order to: 1) identify factors that contribute to the occurrence and severity of collisions between CMVs and VRU’s in urban areas; 2) identify practices that have been used to address factors that contribute to collisions involving CMV’s and VRU’s, and discuss their effectiveness, and 3) identify further studies that are needed to address problems that contribute to collisions involving CMV’s and VRU’s in urban areas.
