Testing of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Crash Analysis Tool (PBCAT)
- (03-01)Also in .pdf PBCAT is a computer-based tool designed to assist
in crash analysis and countermeasure selection. This report describes
the beta-testing of the tool by different types of users.
of Traffic Safety Research Projects (1987-1997): An Updated
Annotated Bibliography of Traffic Safety Research Projects
A listing of research and evaluation projects that deal with pedestrian
and bicycle safety. Research is separated into the following sections:
A. Problem Identification
B. Public Information and Education (PI&E)
Review on Vehicle Travel Speeds and Pedestrian Injuries.
Summarizes the literature examining the relationship between vehicle travel
speeds and resulting pedestrian injury. This document also provides
an analysis of NHTSA's General Estimates System (GES) for the years 1994-1996,
the State of Florida pedestrian crash data for the years 1993-1996, and
NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) for the years 1992-1996.
Literature pertaining to countermeasures for reducing pedestrian
crashes are included.
This report was written to provide insight into the possible causes for
pedestrian highway fatalites involving a single motor vehicle (single
vehicle crash, SV crash), which not surprisingly account for over 90 percent
of pedestrian fatalities from motor vehicle crashes. The analysis was
based on 1998-2001 data from the qatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS),
a census of all data motor vehicle crashes.
Guide for Pedestrian Safety
A guide book describing a systematic, or "zoning" process to
improve pedestrian safety in a cost-effective manner. The zoning process
identifies small geographic areas where a large proportion of pedestrian
crashes occur, and then targets countermeasures to those areas.
