Pedestrian Promotion in Raleigh
Pedestrian Accident Statistics
Ten years ago, over 4,700 pedestrians were fatally involved in car accidents in the US. About half of pedestrians prefer walking on sidewalks. A decade later, the statistics are still relatively the same, according to statistics about pedestrian accidents from Walking Info, a site run by the nation’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.
When it comes to developing communities, a challenge that engineers often face is how to promote more walking while maintaining pedestrian safety. This is especially true for urban spaces like downtown Raleigh. The National Safety Council estimates about 85% of pedestrian accidents occur in city areas.
