A pedestrian accident data collection system was established in six major cities. The system involved using the regular police accident report form and a specifically designed supplementary data form. The information on the forms was combined, and the precipitating and predisposing factors, as well as the distribution of accident types in the accident data base, were determined. Such a data collection system, when fully operational, can provide a great deal of useful information and appears to be very appropriate for use in an accident-based evaluation of pedestrian safety countermeasures designed to impact upon specific types of urban pedestrian accidents. Descriptive data on 2,044 pedestrian accidents from the six study cities is presented. /HSRI/
