REPORT - Understanding Pedestrian Crashes

Here is an interesting document from our friends Down Under at the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC): Understanding Pedestrian Crashes in Victoria. Chances are good that the information presented is equally applicable here in British Columbia.

Recommendations centre around implementation of Safe System principles and include reductions of vehicle speeds in high pedestrian activity areas and supporting road infrastructure, promotion of safer vehicles, and development and implementation of educational and training programs for young pedestrian groups, particularly those engaging in ‘drink walking’, and drivers.
