Feasibility of Roadway Countermeasures for Pedestrian Accident Experience 830052
A study was conducted of the feasibility of roadway improvements as treatments for vehicle pedestrian accidents. Based on a review and analysis of available information, the most promising treatments include one-way street networks, physical barriers, and night-time lighting. The use of sign and signal improvements and parking restrictions were also considered feasible in many instances. The use of a comprehensive program of public education, and police enforcement must complement roadway improvements to help insure more widespread benefits to pedestrian safety.
