PEDESTRIAN SAFETY PROGRAMS--A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE AND OPERATIONAL EXPERIENCE

The objective of the research effort was to develop an empirically and experienced based model pedestrian safety program which cities can use as guidelines for pedestrian safety program planning, implementation, and evaluation. The basis of these guidelines is a synthesis of the plethora of pedestrian-related literature from 1966 through 1977 and the operational experiences of several American municipalities with successful ongoing pedestrian safety efforts. Part 1 of this report presents the results of a screening and review process of pedestrian literature relevant to model safety program development. Part 2 reports on the city selection methodology and the results of the contacts made. The AAA Pedestrian Safety Inventory, which was used as the initial data base of cities with pedestrian safety programs is described. The methodology for identifying regional, populational, and socioeconomically representative cities is then outlined. Finally, a synopsis of information gathered from contacts and visits with nineteen municipalities is given. Appendix A presents data from the individual cities.
