The Pedestrian and Bicycle Crash
Analysis Tool (PBCAT) is a software product intended
to assist State and local bicycle coordinators, planners, and
engineers with improving walking and bicycling safety through
the development and analysis of a database containing details
associated with crashes between motor vehicles and pedestrians
or bicyclists. One of these details is the crash type
which describes the pre-crash actions of the parties involved.
This product was developed by the Federal Highway Administration
in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The beta version of the software was completed in November 1999.
Subsequently, the product underwent a limited beta test that involved
a number of practitioners. This report documents the results of
the test and provides recommended enhancements for future versions
Pedestrian Crashes, Bicycle Crashes,
