UPDATE ON THE PEDESTRIAN CRASH DATA STUDY

In July 1994, a Pedestrian Crash Data Study (PCDS) was initiated within the United States to collect detailed crash reconstruction data on pedestrian crashes. Information on the first eighteen months of data collection was presented in a paper titled "Pedestrian Crash Data Study - An Interim Evaluation" at the ESV Conference held in June 1996. This paper will report on the continued progress and data collection efforts of the PCDS. It will report on the procedures implemented to sanitize the video recordings which are part of the data collection process for vehicle and scene documentation, and report on the continued successful implementation of the pedestrian contour gauge for the documentation of the pedestrian's contacts with the vehicle. Additional analyses of the pedestrian crash circumstances, including pre-crash, at crash, and injury consequences will also be discussed for 292 crashes.
