Abstract:

The purpose of this technical report is to analyze the latest trends in pedestrian fatalities and police-reported motor vehicle crashes involving a pedestrian in the United States since 1997. Key findings in the report are: Pedestrian fatalities declined between 1997 and 2006. However, the probability of a pedestrian fatality in a crash increased while the probability of a pedestrian crash declined. About two-thirds of pedestrian fatalities were in urban areas. Of the nearly 42,500 cities or towns listed according the U.S. Geographic Location Codes by the General Services Administration, only 13 percent of them accounted for those pedestrian fatalities in urban areas. Nationwide, nearly two pedestrians died in vehicle crashes per 100,000 population, and a pedestrian crash death occurred every 70 million miles walked. January 1 and October 31 were the two most deadly days of the year, having the highest number of pedestrian fatalities.
