MEASUREMENT OF PEDESTRIAN BEHAVIOR

As part of its long-range research program aimed at reducing pedestrian and motor vehicle accidents, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been engaged in the development, evaluation, and implementation of countermeasures designed to reduce the incidence of specific pedestrian accident types. Countermeasures have been developed on the basis of a detailed analysis of the predisposing factors and precipitating events associated with various kinds of pedestrian accidents. One approach emphasizes the capability of a countermeasure to modify pedestrian or driver behaviors that have been identified as relating to various types of accidents. The report presents recommendations as to specific pedestrian, driver, and vehicle behaviors to be studied and measured in order to assess the effectiveness of each of 24 proposed potential countermeasures as they relate to each of 11 common accident types.
