THE PEDESTRIAN AS A ROAD USER
This publication presents the main points from earlier reports on pedestrian safety. The first section gives an overall description of pederstrian safety. No immediate suggestions are given for means of reducing dangers to pedestrians. The second section discusses possibilities of increasing pedestrian safety. It briefly gives the results of literature research into the effect of facilities, regulations and initiatives in providing guidance, training, information and publicity campaigns. Measures relating to urban infrastructures are also discussed. The third section goes into the scope for research into the effect of urban planning measures. It is noted that those safety measures aimed at influencing pedestrian behavior by guidance, training, information, and publicity have not had the desired effect. Those aimed at adapting localities to road users' abilities and limitations are likely to have more direct influences on behavior, with both short and long-term effects.
