PEDESTRIAN AND DRIVER--TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS?

The study revealed that pedestrians consider their traffic environment to be decidedly more negative, hazardous, and unsafe than drivers do theirs. Both drivers and pedestrians underestimate present-day road accident mortality, overestimate the security afforded by pedestrian crossings, and overestimate the capacity of the legal system to respond; these are circumstances which tend to foster a false sense of security. -The study discloses that a great need exists among road users for information on the actual risk they run in traffic and on the effects of various road safety measures. /Author/
