Accidents to Young Pedestrians

01 January 1990

This study presents new information about the pattern of accidents involving young pedestrians in urban areas and to a greater level of detail than before about the circumstances surrounding the way the accident occurred. It examines the consequences of these accidents for young people and the practical steps which may be taken to reduce the problem. This is one of the few studies that has given specific attention to the needs of the teenage pedestrian above 14 years of age.
