DEVELOPMENT OF MODEL REGULATIONS FOR PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
Nine model regulations to improve pedestrian safety are presented. Each is targeted at one or more specific types of pedestrian accidents identified in previous research and is intended for codification with existing state or municipal vehicle and traffic codes. The regulations were developed and subjected to public/official acceptance testing through a mailed survey. The final regulations contained in the report are based on detailed analysis tempered by the survey results. In addition, implementation considerations for each regulation are discussed. The nine regulations cover: ice cream vending; road work sites; freeway vehicle stops; bus stop location; parking near intersections and crosswalks; vehicle overtaking; on street parking in new or redeveloped residential areas; pedestrian accident information and countermeasures; and backing signals.
