SAFETY OF PEDESTRIAN CROSSING FACILITIES
The relationship between the existence of pedestrian facilities (zebra crossings, signal controlled crossings and grade separated crossings) and the selective risk to pedestrians crossing urban roads is established, of the six countries investigated it was found that in three of them the pedestrians' relative risk is reduced as more signal controlled crossings are provided. In two other countries this correlation was found only for zebra crossings. In only one country was no correlation found between pedestrian facilities and relative risk. Expect for the Netherlands, it was demonstrated that increasing the number of sebra crossings promoted pedestrian safety. For all six countries investigated, it was demonstrated that making more signal control crossings does have a favorable effect on pedestrian safety.
