IN PEDESTRIAN CRASHES, IT'S VEHICLE SPEED THAT MATTERS THE MOST

A recently prepared report on pedestrian injuries provides these two main findings: 1) regardless of age, pedestrians involved in crashes are more likely to be killed as vehicle speeds increase; and 2) in crashes at any speed, older pedestrians are more likely to die than younger ones. Additional findings show that while lowering speed limits can help, effective enforcement is more critical.
