Abstract

This report reviews literature relevant to the impact of the ageing process on pedestrian safety. The review has three main objectives: • To provide a critical review of research on older pedestrians and road safety. It is intended that this will provide a reference source in formulating future policy and research decisions; • To identify those groups within the population of older pedestrians who are most at risk; • To identify and review initiatives, schemes and strategies that have been developed either at the local or national level, with a view to identifying, where possible, those that are examples of best practice. Because relatively few studies have directly investigated older pedestrians, we have used data from related areas, such as research on older drivers, to support the analysis.
