FATALITY DEVELOPMENT OF VULNERABLE ROAD USER GROUPS IN EUROPE (1980- 1989): PEDESTRIANS, CYCLISTS, TEENAGERS AND THE ELDERLY

This study, which is concerned with mortality from motor vehicle accidents involving vulnerable road user groups - pedestrians, cyclists, teenagers and the elderly - was undertaken to show trends for 1980 to 1989 and differences by age and road user groups. Specifically, the objectives of the study were to: (1) Identify various changes in fatalities, as experienced by each of the following eleven European countries - Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland - during the period from 1980 to 1989; and (2) Determine whether there were statistically significant changes during the 1980's in the traffic accident characteristics studies.
