NCHRP Research Report 893 Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis describes a safety analysis method for (1) conducting systemic safety analyses for pedestrians using analytical techniques to identify pedestrian activities (including behavior), roadway features, and other contextual risk factors (e.g., land use) associated with pedestrian crashes; (2) identifying appropriate and cost-effective systemic pedestrian safety improvements to address their associated risk factors; and (3) enabling transportation agencies to prioritize candidate locations for selected safety improvements based on risk.
The Oregon Department of Transportation (DOT) used the methodology developed in NCHRP Research Report 893 (available at https://www.trb.org/Publications/Blurbs/178087.aspx ) to develop a statewide plan for pedestrian and bicycle safety. The results of this analysis will be used by the state’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to prioritize projects to improve safety for pedestrians and bicycles.
